Tetrio Sphinx Caterpillar

bahamas bug
hi, this bug lives on my property in the bahamas. it seems to be eating all my trees. can you tell me what it is? or what it will grow to become. is it a vemonous caterpillar?

Hi Robert,
This is a Tetrio Sphinx Caterpillar, Pseudosphinx tetrio, which feeds on Plumeria. It is not venomous. It matures into a large gray moth.

  1. They are also in Mameyes, Dominican Republic. My son just saw on & sent me the picture because it was so big & brightly colored.
    I hope it’s not poisonous!?
