Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Javasakuna Jātaka:The Bodhisatta was once a woodpecker,and coming across a lion with a bone stuck in his throat he removed the bone,after having fixed a stick in the lion’s mouth to prevent him from biting off the head of his rescuer.

Later,he saw the lion eating the carcase of a buffalo and asked for a boon.The lion refused,saying it was enough for him to have escaped death after putting his head into a lion’s jaws.

The lion is identified with Devadatta,and the story was related in reference to his ingratitude.J.iii.25-7; cp.Jātakamāla No.xxxiv.
