Tobacco Hornworm On Datura

Photo Description
This huge 'Datura Metel Triple Yellow' is poisonous to humans and animals. The tobacco hornworm is immune to it's toxic properties. This one 'worm' seems hell bent on consuming this entire plant and so far he's doing a pretty good job. He's cutting off leaves with stems three times the diameter of a pencil. As my 'countryfied' neighbor would say, 'He's just trying to make a livin' for his self'.

(The Hornworm is not a worm. It is the larval stage of the beautiful Sphinx moth).
