ABSTRACT

 

Haemoglobin concentration, packed cell volume, red cell count, erythrocyte size, blood glucose, total plasma protein, total serum protein and albumin concentration have been determined for the monitor lizard Varanus griseus and the amphisbaenian Diplornetopon zarudnyi. The mean values reported reflect some variations specific to each animal. Paper and cellulose acetate electrophoretic separations of serum and plasma proteins have been conducted. Four to five fractions were obtained for the serum and plasma of Varanus. Three fractions only were obtained for Diplometopon. No qualitative difference between the patterns of serum and plasma was detected. Haemoglobin behaviour on electrophoresis showed a single anodic component for Vuranus and two widely separated anodic bands for Diplometopon. Blood protein examination revealed that the monitor lizard Vuranus griselts has the typical lizard characters. The amphisbaenian Diplometopon zarurdnyi has some different characters
