Boddaert’s Tropical Racer (Mastigodryas boddaerti)
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.

I originally thought this was a young Drymoluber dichrous, but was shown the error of my ways on iNaturalist.

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