Can someone please help me identify this caterpillar looking insect from the Caribbean?

    $\begingroup$ Hi, if you specify the island, the habitat in which it was found and the dimensions of the caterpillars it helps the ID. $\endgroup$

They look like the caterpillars of Alope sphinx (Erinnyis alope) enter image description here There is a webpage on a dedicated website here: https://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Erinnyis-alope

Among the pictures in the linked website you can find one with the green and brown morphs/stages of the caterpillars.
