I don't know, hopefully, I can show you if I'm lucky catching him coming out. I went back the next day and found this:

and then two days later:

He/she is still in this condition right now. I have my kids watching it. Hopefully, we'll be lucky enough to see the result of the transformation.

I could be wrong, but I bet if you brushed bare skin against those spines you would soon regret it.

I brushed against a plain il brown one in the garden one day and started to get pretty severe reactions very quickly. Severe enough I was thinking about how far and time needed to get to a hospital and over the next 30 minutes or so the symptoms lessened.

Brightly colored and with those spines I am thinking "LOOK OUT/DANGER"
