This Tersa Sphinx Moth Caterpillar is munching on Nancy's Pinta plants. Are all caterpillars plant eaters?

Answer:

While most caterpillars are strict vegetarians, several species of inchworms found in Hawaii are carnivorous. Some lurk near flowers to grab unsuspecting insects, while others capture and eat snails. Some even spin silk webs, almost like spiders.
