It looks like a gummy bear caterpillar!
The slug-like caterpillar of a dalcerid moth (family Dalceridae). These  rare caterpillars are covered with sticky, gellatinous tubercles.  Peruvian Amazon.
Caterpillars of the dalcerid moth  Dalcera abrasa, a common pest of coffee plants, have also been found to  feed on Qualea, which is a flowering plant genus in the family Vochysiaceae. These  plants occur in the Neotropics and their wood makes good timber and  firewood and is used in construction.
