This has to be the most beautiful caterpillar I've ever heard of!
Thats a cool caterpillar.
Perhaps it's worth getting in touch with Bill Oehlke, who runs this site on Sphingidae of Peru. If he doesn't know, I imagine he'd be very interested to see it: http://www.silkmoths.bizland.com/SphPeru...

Congratulations for this gorgeous sphinx!
Thanks again friends...Craig, pretty funny. Danikisso..I'm worried too, and sickened at the thought.
There's a party going on there :) Very exciting spot Clare! Always good to meet another Hawk Moth, in any form. The adults are all amazing in my book, so I can't wait to find out what clothes they'll be wearing to the next party!
Incredible colours. Congratulations!!!
What a beauty! Congratulations!
Very nice. Congratulations.
Beauty !! Congratulations :)
This is a Sphinx Caterpillar (Sphingidae)
Congratulations ceherzog on SOTD. Beautiful caterpillar, well deserved!
Wow, I'm so thrilled to see this yet it saddens me that Ecuador is selling a third of It's rain forest to Chinese Oil companies. :-(http://www.whitewolfpack.com/2013/04/ecu...
