My wife dug this thing up when planting a bush. It moves when touched but it does not appear to be able to move much. Reminds me of something in metamorphosis, except it moves. Its segmented and has a hornlike projection. What is this thing?

This is the Pupa of one of the Giant Silkmoths, and we believe it is most likely the pupa of the Imperial Moth. Here is a photo from BugGuide that supports our theory.
