Deceased:
no
Notes:
Seen crawling up a ditch full of Kalophrynus interlineatus and a few Kaloula pulchra, attempting to feed on them, and getting its eyes and face covered in the frogs sticky secretion in the process, so much that it seemed temporarily blinded. There were a couple of fresh K. interlineatus carcasses in the ditch, presumably killed and unconsumed by the partially incapacitated cobra.
