We examined the diet of Amyda cartilaginea from 2 localities in Sarawak: Loagan Bunut National Park and Balai Ringin. The most commonly found items in stomach contents, when using percentage frequency of occurrence, were plant material (77%) and unknown vertebrate parts (55%). Fecal analysis indicated similar results: plant material (100%), unknown vertebrate parts (84%), fish (69%), and unknown arthropods (62%). Results indicate that A. cartilaginea is an opportunistic omnivore.
