Polyphemus Moth Caterpillar

Unknown Caterpillar
My nephew found this caterpillar on November 17, in the top of an oak tree, in Apopka, Fl. Can you tell us what it is?

Hi Patty,
This is a Polyphemus Moth Caterpillar. It is one of the Giant Silk Moths or Saturnid Moths. We have many photos of adult moths.
