Thanks Brendan! I am very happy with the 4+ ;-)...

I believe bayucca and Ashley are correct with a juvenile H. rosenbergi. Green bones present and mottled coloration. I'm going to +1 that too.

Thanks a lot my friends, two more angles, maybe you can see some other detail that will help!

That is the species I'm leaning towards. I'm still going through all 70 species of the Hypsiboas, and the juvenile is closest. My only problem is I can't find one with the black line around the tympanum, but everything else fits. I'm going to +1 it :)

"must" be a juvenile Hypsiboas rosenbergi. Ashley, please, verify. I checked the other ones as well, but range is out for all others. What do you think??

I'm 95% sure it's in the genus Hypsiboas, trying to find a species for you

Is likely that I am wrong. I also had doubts about the pupil.

I do not know what this is, but I do know Marta's suggestion is wrong. Her suggestion has a vertical pupil, this frog has a horizontal pupil. I will look and see if I can find what it is, beautiful shot though!
