Hi. I am wondering if you can identify this caterpillar? for me. Its about an inch and a half long. It was found on a rose bush in the front yard. I live in Kerrville, Texas.
Thanks in advance

Hi Daniel,
This is a Pipevine Swallowtail Caterpillar, Battus philenor. Rose is not a host plant, so we can only guess a pipevine is growing nearby.
