Amphibiophile Needed

I need some help here. Are there any herpetologists that can ID this frog for me? Anyone?

Just seeing it takes me back to my youth as an older brother. I need to track one of these down and hide it on my little sister's pillow.

Could it be a White's Tree Frog?

Obviously a Phyllomedusa sauvagei, or waxy monkey frog.

White's Tree Frog has horizontal pupils.

All in the eye of the beholder.

I was with you, Becca and Morgan, before Rasmus weighed in. Phyllomedusa sauvagei it is.

Not ugly. Lovely!

Personally I think wax frogs are adorable except when they apply their wax. They use their front and hind legs to wipe the wax they excrete all over themselves. It's pretty grody to watch because their limbs move in really unnatural positions.
