Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Samudda Jātaka:The Bodhisatta was once a sea spirit,and heard a water crow flying about,trying to check shoals of fish and flocks of birds,saying,”Don’t drink too much sea water,be careful of emptying the sea.” The sea spirit,seeing his greediness,assumed a terrible shape and frightened him away.

The story was related in reference to the great greediness of Upananda the Sākyan (q.v.).He is identified with the water crow.J.ii.441f.
