One night some of us went out on a small boat to see if we could find any caimans or tree boas or other interesting critters. We had a low-critter night, though. This cute little frog was the only herp I saw on the entire trip (people on the other side of the boat saw a couple more frogs). But, it was a new species for me, so still a good frog to find.

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

Spotted Hatchet-faced Treefrog (Sphaenorhynchus dorisae) Spotted Hatchet-faced Treefrog (Sphaenorhynchus dorisae)
On our first night hike of this trip to Peru, Cliff or Ben (I forget which one) noticed this interesting frog crouched down on a leaf at about head height. I recognized it as a Hatchet-faced Treefrog, because, well, it has a hatchet-shaped face. Also it was in a tree. But I was surprised to see it at this location, because all of the Sphaenorhynchus species are usually found in or close to ponds, and there was no nearby pond.
