These frogs are called "Map Treefrogs" because the asymmetrical patterns on their back reminded someone of the contours of a map. They are large, impressive frogs. We woke this one up in order to get some photos of its big bulging eyes, but it quickly hunkered down into its "you can't see me" napping position.

Here is a complete list of the herps I saw in the wild on my 2013 MT Amazon Expeditions trip.

Map Treefrog (Hypsiboas geographicus)
The heel spurs and blotchy appearance identify this sleeping treefrog as Hypsiboas geographicus. I'm not sure why this nocturnal frog was sleeping at night. Perhaps it was dreaming of its next world travels, as I frequently do.
