Toad Feeding on a Centipede

Saw some movement among the ground beside my home one night. I switched on the light to check what it was. It was just an Asian Toad, so I decided to leave it there. But then I spotted something yellowish in its mouth. Upon a closer look, I realized that the toad was actually feeding on a centipede, a really large one in fact.

Centipedes are common here and are considered dangerous pests as their bites can be harmful. These toads are actually doing us a favour by getting rid of these centipedes. I hope this toad doesn't get hurt by eating it though.
