Description Although predatory events are uncommon to be recorded in nature, these data are important tools for understanding prey-predator interaction of the involved species. Snakes of genus Thamnodynastes are known for having an anuran diet, including some species of hylid frogs in their diet. Despite this, this pattern does not include T. chaquensis since there are no records on predation or trophic interaction with hylid frogs.Here, we report the first predatory interaction between T. chaquensis and two hylid frogs in Brazilian Cerrado. The first predation event with treefrog Boana caiapo occurred with success but, the second with B. albopunctatadid not. Connecting trophic links within an ecosystem requires in-depth knowledge of its species and their intraspecific interactions. In this context, records of the predation and predation attempts such as these may help to connect unknown trophic links, which helps to understand aspects of the natural history of the species involved.
Aunque los eventos depredatorios son poco comunes de registrar en la naturaleza, estos datos son herramientas importantes para comprender la interacción presa-depredador de las especies involucradas. Las serpientes del género Thamnodynastes son conocidas por su dieta basada en anuros y, aunque algunas especies incluyen ranas hílidas en su dieta, esto no ocurre en la especie T. chaquensis porque no hay registros de depredación o interacción trófica con los hílidos. Aquí informamos sobre la primera interacción depredatoria entre T. chaquensis y dos ranas hílidas del Cerrado brasilero. El primer evento de depredación con la rana Boana caiapo fue exitoso, pero el segundo con B. albopunctata no. Conectar los enlaces tróficos dentro de un ecosistema requiere conocer íntimamente sus especies y sus interacciones intraespecíficas. En este contexto, los registros de depredación y de intentos de depredación como estos pueden ayudar a conectar enlaces tróficos no conocidos, lo cual ayuda a comprender los aspectos de la historia natural de las especies involucradas.
