This diurnal, forest-floor snake was found by Matt Cage at night coiled up in some jungly vegetation. You can really see the glossiness in these photos. Here is a complete list of the herps I saw in the wild on my 2013 MT Amazon Expeditions trip.

Common Glossy Racer (Drymoluber dichrous)
After an unproductive boat ride in which I saw only a single frog, I wasn't ready to call it quits for the night so I headed back out into the forest. First I looked for and found a particularly interesting-looking treefrog, and then I took the short trail to see if anything else worth seeing might put in an appearance. And I was not disappointed, since I found this juvenile sleeping snake.

This species is strongly patterned as youngsters, and unpatterned as adults. The one I saw was somewhere in between, where the childhood bands were still visible but not very prominent.

Here is a complete list of the herps I saw in the wild on my 2014 MT Amazon Expeditions trip.
