Can anyone identify this specific caterpillar? I have had many suggestions, but I still don't see anything close enough.

This looks like a pandora sphinx moth that is just about ready to pupate. You'll find more information about their life cycle here: https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/hornworm_caterpillars_the_big_cats_of_the_vineyard

Thank you so much!
