A study on Bomean tadpoles was conducted on fieldworks basis from August 2004 to October 2004. The tadpole collection was done from three collection sites; two were from forested area, namely Gunung Gading National Park and Kubah National Park. The other site was at a human settlement area; Desa Ilmu, Kota Samarahan, Sarawak. Five representative families of tadpoles, Megophryidae, Bufonidae, Microhylidae, Ranidae and Rhacophoridae were collected during this sampling period. The contents of the gut of tadpole identified showed that there was a major overlap of ingested food and blue-green algae were ingested, the most (42%). Resource partitioning were practiced by tadpoles and diet composition was affected by feeding strategies, mouth parts, stages of organisms and the type of environment the organism lives in.
