Erythrolamprus miliaris is a Neotropical aglyph snake with a generalist feeding habit. We report herein the first observed instance of simultaneous predation on an adult Leptodactylus latrans by two adult individuals of E. miliaris. Although the ultimate outcome remains unknown, this report underscores the importance of comprehensive documentation in understanding predator-prey relationships and ecological dynamics in urban areas.
