Great or small Tiger caterpillar

This morning I found a caterpillar with a warm fur coat.
I took him with me for a photo.
But he was rather shy and curled himself into a little ball just like a hedgehogs do when they feel not safe.
I waited a a while and yes, he started running away very quickly.
I am not sure he is a small or a great Tiger.
Maybe someone knows?

Ruby Tiger, Kleine Beer (Phragmatobia fuliginosa)
Garden Tiger, Grote Beer, (Arctia caja)
