Today, I learned the differences between the tomato horn worm and the tobacco horn worm. I have tobacco horn worms. Always learning on this forum!

Both tobacco and tomato hornworms eat, tomatoes?

Yes. Supposedly, the tobacco horn worm is more prevalent and is geographically wider spread than the tomato worm.

Yep. And supposedly, the further south you go , the more tobacco and vice a versa. Although I really can't find any difference in them other than the name and a few small cosmetic differences.

This plump baby looks a bit like a hornworm, but hasn't got a horn, and isn't closely related. It will become a moth called "Hitched Arches," a brownish moth with white markings. I've seen a caterpillar like this twice before on weeds. I was surprised to see it on a carrot stem in front of my ground cherries, but it sounds like they aren't too particular about what they eat. It's not a classic garden pest, so if I find it again, I'll move it elsewhere in my yard to some weeds I know it can eat.
