Chewy the Achemon sphinx moth is home

Pauline discovered Chewy as a giant green caterpillar on 7/11/2015 chewing away at our Merlot leaves. He chewed so loud that we could hear him through the Tupperware where he was temporarily kept and named him Chewy. He dug into the soil in a base on 7/13/2015 and pupated 2 days later. He emerged this morning. Unlike Monarch butterfly where its first poo is red, Achemon sphinx moth's first poo is cream color.

If you have a lot of foliage it's been said you can let a few survive and become a beneficail pollinator called a spinx moth. The spinx moth is a very large and pretty moth.

Captured video of a newly pupated sphinx moth at Home Depot in Denver, CO. It's quite beautiful. I was very tempted to buy the plant just so I could take it home. I believe that this is a female as the antennae are not "fuzzy".
