    This is not yet a catepillar just a larvae. If you google catepillar larvaes, you might find one exactly like this one..

    I’m not sure on this one….if you’d like try….they’re amazing on ID’ing.
    Caterpillars ARE larvae. :o) They start as egg…then larvae/caterpillar…then pupate…THEN become the adults we see fluttering about.
    I’d like to say that this is possibly a type of Sphinx moth…but don’t hold me to that.
    Do you have any other plants near-by like veggies or anything?

  • there are some cacti plants, a palm, and some wondering jew plant and other roses
