A full-color guide depicting 212 Peruvian herp species coming from Loreto is available to freely download from http://fm2.fieldmuseum.org/plantguides/guideimages.asp?ID=393
This beautiful and useful 14 pages guide is authored by Giuseppe Gagliardi-Urrutia, from the Peruvian Center for Biodiversity and Conservation. 
Illustrated in the guide are 122 frogs, 1 caecilian, 2 salamanders, 2 crocodilians, 2 amphisbaenians, 32 lizards, 46 snakes and 5 turtles species.
The utility of the guide surpases that for Peruvian herp researchers and amateurs, since several of these species also occur in other South American countries.
