    Tomato worms don't have the fine hairs on them do they?

    I'm thinking something else.

    Catalpa worm, aka fish bait! Is that leaf next to it from a Catalpa tree? :popcorn:

    I dont recall the catalpas having that yellow. Tomato hornworms have yellow and white stripes across the body, iirc. No idea on that beastie.

    I looked around in Google images, and on the Univ. of Mo Extension site, and I've concluded that I still have no idea what that is. :D

    They have yellow, just not that pattern(a stripe on the sides). Plus they are black across the top.

    It could be a magic caterpillar if you put it on a hook and turn it into a fish. Other than that I got nothin.
