Male was observed courting female, as female was attempting to consume what I believe was a Fowler's Toad (though official ID of the toad was never confirmed, as I kept a reasonable so not to disturb the situation). The male eventually fled and never did mate with the female. The female eventually successfully consumed the toad. Feel free to email me for more details if need be.
