big and green

On our way home I saw this caterpillar crossing the road, we went back to fetch him/her home for the kids to see. For a bug it seemed intelligent. It figured out where the top of the bug-box was and tried diligently to open it, bending double and pushing as well as grabbing it the lid with its mouth.

I think it is a type of hawk/hummingbird moth larvae.
