I saw this giant green caterpillar in the neighbourhood and I would love to find out what it is!
This is the caterpillar of a Pandorus Sphinx, and it is a variable species with background colors of orange, brown and black as well as green. See Sphingidae of the Americas for additional information. The adult Pandorus Sphinx is a beautiful green moth.
