Caterpillar id - To accurately identify what species it is, I would submit the pictures to MyPestGuide - they offer a free insect / pest identification service in Australia. Also, they have a mobile app which is available from the google play store...68 days 13hrs
Problems with white sapotes pics included - I finally tasted my first white sapote (Chris) about two weeks ago - but to be honest, I was very disappointed as the fruit was really bitter.
