Is that a Buck Moth caterpillar?

Was wondering the same thing, but I have this photo that was ID'd as a Buck Moth Caterpillar and there are significant differences. Maybe someone will comment on both and resolve the issue.

It is a caterpillar of a buck moth (Hemileuca maia). The color pattern of these caterpillars can be quite variable, but the two rows of dorsal stellate setae are constant...

So both caterpillars are Buck Moth larva? Didn't realize there was that much variation. Thank you so much Flapdoodle!
