Hi I found this caterpillar in my grapevine today. I’ve not seen anything like it. Could you tell me what sort is it and is it harmful to us?

Vine Hawkmoth Caterpillar

Dear Fiona,
Cultivated grape is one of a list of plants on Butterfly House that serve as larval food plants for the Vine Hawkmoth Caterpillar,
Hippotion celerio.  The Vine Hawkmoth Caterpillar is not dangerous to humans.
