Crowned False Boa (Pseudoboa coronata)
This was the only live snake we found in an evening of road-cruising the Iquitos-to-Nauta Road (in a rented bus!). This eye-catching snake was particularly squirmy and I was lucky to get this one more-or-less focused photo in about twenty minutes of various people's attempts to get the dang thing to hold still for more than two seconds.

My Travelogues and Trip Lists page includes a complete list of the herps I saw in the wild on my 2016 MT Amazon Expeditions trip.
