Predation on Dendropsophus brevifrons (Duellman & Crump, 1974) (Anura: Hylidae) by the giant fishing spider Ancylometes rufus (Walckenaer, 1837) (Araneae: Ctenidae)
We report a predation event of Dendropsophus brevifrons by Ancylometes rufus from Eastern Amazon. Our observation corroborates the importance of opportunistic predation of spiders on the frogs in breeding activity.
