Hello Shekai... You may have inadvertently clicked the Butterfly mission. Pls transfer this beautiful hawkmoth caterpillar spotting to our Moth mission - http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1591.... :)
Thanks kuya Jolly, I've seen your same spotting. This caterpillar buries itself in a moist soil at night time when its time to transform into a pupa. The pupa is a glossy chocolate brown in color.
Beautiful spotting. Looks like a vine hawk moth caterpillar (Hippotion celerio). I have a similar spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/120...
Nice spot Shekainah!
