Not for the faint hearted! Do you know what this is?

You have been warned!

Any idea what this is?

 

It is shades of olive green with black and white markings. Those aren’t eyes, by the way, but markings. This one is about 60mm long and 10mm in diameter. It’s a fleshy creature with no hairs, but that’s a ‘horn’ on the end.

The suggestion is that it’s an elephant hawk moth, anyone know for sure?

  1. Definitely an elephant hawk moth caterpillar. Believe that the large ‘eyes’ are meant to put predators off. Probably makes them laugh to much to be able to eat it!
