Found in the woods where I live around jay oklahoma. It was about 5 inches long with a leather type skin. Iv never seen anything like it and wish I would have kept it to see what it turned into but I let it go.

Dear Shelly,
This is the caterpillar of a Pandorus Sphinx, and it is in a typical posture of retracting its head.  Leaves of grape and Virginia creeper are a preferred food for the caterpillars.
