Nauta Mushroomtongue Salamander

Bolitoglossa altamazonica
(Cope, 1874)
Madre Selva field station, Depto Loreto, Peru. January 16, 2013.

B. altamazonica is likely a species complex; to date I can distinguish it from one other species (B. peruvianus). There were ants moving about near this little salamander, and as I took pictures it snapped them up if they got too close.

My Flickr album for this species is here.
