Tropical big green leave cutter caterpillar

Tropical big green leave cutter caterpillar. I'm not sure which end of the caterpillar is the head or the tail. The end with the spike or horn might be the head and the spots at the tail is the fake eyes to trick predator.

After the photo of the caterpillar was taken, the caterpillar was unceremoniously cut into two by my mum because it was destroying her crop (yam ~ dioscorea).

What a nice photo! Amazing caterpillar, I found one of the same species in my yard too. I was wondering can anyone identify it . I have been itching to know what species it is.
