Sharp-nosed Toad

Rhinella dapsilis
(Myers and Carvalho, 1945)
Madre Selva field station, Depto Loreto, Peru. January 18, 2013

These handsome toads are adept at climbing and jumping into the vegetation. They can sometimes be confused with specimens of the Rhinella margaritifera complex, but key diagnostics include the pointy beak and the fringed dorsolateral fold that runs to the thigh.

My Flickr album for this species is here.
