I googled the Sphinx Moth pictures.

Thank-you again :)

Actually
This is the caterpillar of a Sphinx Moth. It is Eumorpha pandorus, the Pandorus Sphinx. If you would like to raise it, feed it leaves from the bush you found it on, and provide it some dirt to dig into. When it is finished growing, it will burrow and pupate. It is already pretty close to this stage, as evidenced by the lack of a horn.

 
My bad.
Thanks for the correction. :D

i think
it's some sort of swallowtail cat.
