Predation on the Indian Bull frog Hoplobatrachus tigerinus (Daudin, 1802) (Anura: Dicroglossidae) by the Asian House Shrew Suncus murinus (Linnaeus, 1766) (Soricomorpha: Soricidae) from Nepal


We present a natural history account of the first record of probable predation on the Indian bull frog, Hoplobatrachus  tigerinus  by the Asian House  Shrew, Suncus murinus  from  Morang district,  Nepal. The present communication provides an example of a nearly equal-sized predator-prey interaction in a  natural ecosystem and provides interesting information on the natural history of these taxa.
