Could anyone please help me identify this hairy little creature I found today?
It is a caterpillar of elephant hawk moth, Deilephila elpenor
(the caterpillar of the small elephant hawk moth is plainer)
There are lots of them about this year, judging by the frequency of their appearance on NaturePlus.
wow he's a cool looking caterpillar what ever he is?!
