Wow, nice find!

Shouldn't the ID be "Poplar Hawk Moth Caterpillar" instead of just "Hawk Moth Caterpillar", since the latin name is for the Poplar Hawk Moth and not just any Hawk Moth

Hi ChunXingWong
It's true the German text says there is one description of the columbian species Martiodrilus (Cordilleroscolex) olivaceus by (Ayala et. al. 1972) that says it can grow up to 1090 mm.
All the other "giant" species are described to grow up to 250-600mm in length.

Hi I'd say either a
Blond-crested Woodpecker (Celeus flavescens)
or a
Pale-crested Woodpecker (Celeus lugubris)

Looks like a kind of Hawk moth (Sphingidae), because of the horn on it's rear end.
