Caterpillar has interesting defence mechanism

I think this caterpillar is a  Papilio Demoleus, which becomes a Lime Buttefly. When smaller they look like bird poo, then as they grow they become greener.

As a defence mechanism, two tentacles pop out of their heads, releasing a chemical that smells like vomit.
