Pale green and pink caterpillar found on my shoe! - Paectes

Pale green and pink caterpillar found on my shoe! - Paectes
TIERRA VERDE, Pinellas County, Florida, USA
May 5, 2022
Size: close to an inch
After a walk in the yard, I found this guy on my shoe on the back porch, so I have no idea near what plant I picked him up. He has 6 insect legs, 8 prolegs plus these clasper/pincer things on the end. He appears smooth with white dots and a peach flush in the center. He's chillin' in a plastic box, but I'd sure like to get him back on a plant! Can anyone help? Thank you!
I brought in some variety of leaves for him and he's eating oak!

Yes please click on Edit and fix the county field
You put Pinellas County, Florida in the field and it should just be Pinellas
Any more images coming - lateral? facial?
