How to tell if caterpillar is dead?

Hi, this is a bit of a long story but i found a caterpillar in a parking lot and let it crawl onto my hand (probably a bad idea since im still not sure if its poisonous or not) but it seemed to be having quite a bit of fun and didnt curl up or try and bite me. I placed it in a particularly thorny patch of weeds, and came back about ten minutes later to see it not moving at all! It wasnt attatched to a stem or anything, and there's no signs of damage on it. Im a little worried, though. It doesnt feel brittle at all although the segment around its head seems a little dull/dry? Im not sure what to do at this point, any advice is much appreciated!
