The Boa Constrictor (Boa constrictor) is a large, heavybodied snake inhabiting a diversity of habitats throughout most of South America. It is a dietary generalist, foraging on a wide variety of prey including shrimp, fish, lizards, birds and mammals (e.g., Sironi et al. 2000, Quick et al. 2005, Pizzatto et al. 2009, Sanches et al. 2018). In this note we document a Boa Constrictor preying on a Great Kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus).
