RHINELLA MIRANDARIBEIROI. PREDATION. Rhinalla mirandaribeiroi is a medium-sized bufonid belonging to the R. granulosa group found in the Cerrado Biome and in Cerrado enclaves in the Amazon. Here, we report predation of R. mirandaribeiroi by Leptodeira annulata. This is the first record of R. mirandaribeiroi being preyed by L. annulata. This record contributes to the increase of knowledge about the potential predators of this species, as well for the diet of L. annulata
