Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillar

Dear Mac F,
This is the caterpillar of a Tiger Swallowtail.  Recent taxonomy has resulted in the classification of several different species based on the range, and several different species, including the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and the Canadian Tiger Swallowtail have ranges that overlap in your vicinity.

    I found this same caterpillar ( tiger swallowtail ) in the Brown stage, on my
    deck. I live in the southern most part of Alabama, on the coast. My
    Question.. is it odd to flnd this caterpillar this far south?? I have never
    seen one before !
    Thank you James Gulf Shores, Alabama
