When disturbed, it will lift up its head and waves its legs. I found out later from Tzi Ming that this is the caterpillar of the Neostauropus alternus, a drab brown moth ;-(
A few of my hawk moths Caterpillar has pupated!They are (from the top) :
-Eupanacra elegantulus or E. mydon.
You can see photo of P. menephron and E. borneensis in my earlier post.
