Oleander hawk-moth caterpillar

Everybody has their own idea of what's a good munchie. This here is one focused caterpillar in a hurry. It has been steadily chewing its way since the last 24 hours or more through numerous leaves, flowers and buds of the Oleander, unaware that in future it might have to go through god-knows-what to finally turn into a glorious Hawk-Moth. For now it seems content to merrily hog. 

 These cat was easily 3.5 inches long and abt half inch wide.
