Biggest tomato hornworm ever

No, I don't kill them. I have a big garden, but had a couple potted tomatoes on my deck. I discovered hornworms on them, but decided I already had too many tomatoes, so I let them have their way. This is the biggest one I've ever seen. It was at least 4". But, I was wondering......do they just crawl away to somewhere else to pupate? Do they have a favorite place? This is the first year I ever had them eating the green tomatoes too. Does that happen if the leaves don't have enough moisture? Anyhow......please don't tell me how to kill them. In other years, I just move them.

Thanks!
