Meet Carl Caterpillar, A.K.A. Tomato Glutton. Bob told me he had been picking these guys off his tomato plants, they are were eating the plants and tomatoes. Then I read a post by Gail at Familar Spirits and she had a photo just like our Carl. I asked on her blog, where do they come from? Her answer was it is a Tomato Hornworm and it turns into a butterfly.
Who knew??? I sure did not. The very next morning, while staring at the bucket garden, I spied this.
Did some Google research and found He turns into the Five Spotted Hawkmoth follow the link to see the moth photo.
The hog part comes in because he ate the whole tomato. if you enlarge these 3 pics you can see his head was buried deep inside the half tomato that was left when I found him.
