Zebra Tiger Colored Caterpillar -First time sighted.

This is my first sighting of this style of Caterpillar. Usually we have the blue leaf eaters and the green leafeaters as you may have seen in my previous posts. Anyone know what this thing is? Will it morph into a butterfly?

It had eaten a substantial amount of the small tree it was in, with approx. 8 leaves having segments chewed from them. A healthy appetite and an interesting color allowed this guy to keep on trucking.

Ps. The little brown flecks on its back are tiny pieces of bark from when it was rolling on the ground after it jumped from the small tree it was in when I took my first few shots.  The white was mind-blowing—I have never seen a white one before with black dots!  Give me a pill and call me Alice!
