Well hes mostly green and pink on top, his face is scary looking haha. He has a spike or horn on his tail side. He dosnt have anything else. No spots or stripes. I wanna take a pic with him on my face but im scared hes poisonous. Please hurry haha and i probably wont check my email if that applys at all.
This is a Hornworm, the caterpillar of a Sphinx Moth in the family Sphingidae, and we believe it is a Waved Sphinx Hornworm, Ceratomia undulosa, that has turned pink as a sign it is preparing to pupate. See the image on the Sphingidae of the Americas site, scrolling down. It is not poisonous, and we eagerly await the image of you posing with this juicy guy.
