Finally, on our penultimate night in the forest, I was hiking by myself and spotted this gorgeous youngster just off the side of the trail. My days of never having seen a wild rainbow boa were finally over. For a while I thought that perhaps I'd never need to visit the Peruvian Amazon again. But then Matt sent out a photo of some excellent frog that I haven't seen, and that silly thought vanished in a puff of smoke.
