hungry caterpillar - Cladius difformis

Size: 3/4"?
this little guy hitchhiked into my house on a rose cutting so I let him hang out until I could get some photos. I see these eating my roses quite a bit. This one started walking away from the cutting though after it ate a whole leaf so he is back outside now. They seem greener irl then in my photo, but he also seemed less green while taking the photos then normal....
