HUGE tomato hornworms

I've had hornworms in my garden in years past, but nothing the size of the 2 that were munching on my tomato plants this past week. They were monstrous! I don't know how long they were snacking on the leaves, but half of my one plant was demolished... all leaves were gone & there were just stems left. I squished the first one with my shoe & green junk squirt my hubby's feet about 3 feet away. He was none too pleased, but I was quite amused... at the impact of the squished bug... it wasn't too amusing that half of my tomato plant was eaten. Fortunately, tomatoes are resilient, so it's made a speedy recovery.
