Armyworm Caterpillar
Genus Spodoptera

destructive moth caterpillar

If you need a defoliant, this is the caterpillar to do it.  They are quite large and eat a lot,
not unlike most male college students.  I couldn't identify this one to species but I found
it on Antelope Island and have found a lot of them through the years.
