Looks like an emperor butterfly caterpillar. They are lovely blue and black.

 Where do y'all live, I can see what caterpillars are indigenous to your area.

Looks like it could be....or at least a relative. These are called Yellownecked caterpillars, usually found in the eastern US.

I looked up every caterpillar in Arkansas and couldn't find it.  Are you sure it's a caterpillar?
