I found the same one today in south Fort Worth, TX.  Did we ever get an identification?  I can not give any info on the the food type unless they eat carpet(found him in my office).

Put the caterpillar back where you found it.  It's in the hornworm, sphinxmoth and hawkmoth family, which are difficult to keep alive in captivity.

I think I may have found the same one in SW Houston, TX.  I got several pics of its head (I only know this because it was moving forward and had a tail!)   The form won't let me post a picture tho.
