I agree jjandin,this is a Gaudy Baron and ironically the caterpillars of Common and Gaudy are quite similar and have the same host plant , Mangohttp://winged-jewels.blogspot.com/2013/0...
The barons have similar looking caterpillars... those with long spikes/brushes. Happened to find a photo of Gaudy Baron's caterpillar here:http://www.indianaturewatch.net/displayi...
