Abstract

Six species of anurans were studied representing four of the five anuran families occurring in Malaya and Singapore. Food items, variation in the diet, and the relationship between predator and prey size are discussed. Singapore anurans show various degrees of selectivity for particular types of prey. In general, availability of prey in the habitat, the size of the prey animals and the size of the predators, especially the gape of the mouth, determined the diet.
