Large (around 9.5 cm), green caterpillar with white and black banding and eye spots along each segment. Prominent red horn on posterior segment.
Feeding on my cherry tomatoes in the garden. Surrounded by mixed hardwoods in my back yard.
This caterpillar was latched onto my tomato plant and did not want to let go! I was impressed by mouthparts as well as the "velcro-action" of its prolegs! It took a lot of effort for me to remove this from the plant!
Lat: 34.40, Long: -85.03
