Dear all herping experts!

As I know there is an infinite source of knowledge here I need some help to identify three species.

They are all from the Peruvian rainforest, Tapiche reserve. 500km outside Iquitos.

1. The guide told me it was very poisoned. I think he said something about "Lens headed snake" or something but it´s nothing who is named in that way in Peru.

2. Sitting in the sand shore along the river. Some kind of Warty toad?

3. Inside my cabin in the night after a rain. Some kind of tree frog I guess?

4. This funny thing looks like a dead leaf.

1. Fer-de-Lance (Bothrops atrox), I believe. They're also known as Lanceheads or Lance-headed Snakes. The patterning is a bit odd, but I'd definitely say it's a Bothrops.

2. Cane Toad (Rhinella marina)

3. Not sure of the species, but it's in the genus Osteocephalus. Never seen one with that dorsal stripe. Very cool!

4. Rhinella margaritifera

Eye of that frog reminds me of taurinus, but that vertebral line is odd indeed.
