The white-lined sphinx caterpillar is around 2 1/2 inches long with a green or yellow body and a series of black stripes down its length. It may have additional yellow and pink dots or stripes. The exact pattern of the white-lined sphinx caterpillar depends on the climate, weather and individual insect. Some have additional stripes or are even entirely black, according to HGTV. All white-lined sphinx caterpillars have a spike or pointed horn on their back ends. Read more: White-Lined Sphinx Caterpillar Information | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/about_6687764_white_...
