PREDATION OF Felis catus (LINNAEUS, 1758) BY Boa constrictor amarali (STULL, 1932)
The most mammal preys of B. constrictor are median and small primates, rodents, opossums and bats. In general, predatory mammals are not part of diet of B. constrictor. Here we report the predation of Felis catus by Boa constrictor amarali. Reports of anecdotal events like this are important both to emphasize the opportunistic and generalist feeding habit of B. constrictor and their ability to live in an anthropogenic landscape.
