The Biggest Caterpillar I Have Ever Seen

LOOK at what was creeping under my front door tonight!! Is this "little" thing cool or what?! Hubby Matt was outside playing with the dog when he spotted this guy. He came running in and yelled to come out that second. Well, I came running, and quickly went back inside to grab the camera! This guy is HUGE at 3" long. Easily the largest caterpillar I've ever seen. We tucked him inside a bush in the yard to keep him safe. I'd just love to see what kind of butterfly this guy grows up to be!

yep - they get huge! It's a horn worm, he'll morph into the hummingbird moth
