Evidence of a vernal and pre nuptial spermatogenetic cycle in a mediterranean snake malpolon monspessulanus reptilia colubridae


, : Evidence of a vernal and pre nuptial spermatogenetic cycle in a mediterranean snake malpolon monspessulanus reptilia colubridae. Comptes Rendus des Seances de l'Academie des Sciences Serie III Sciences de la Vie 292(23): 1207-1210

Histological study of male sexual cycle in M. monspessulanus shows evidence that this snake is the only holarctic Colubridae not having an aestival spermatogenetic cycle. This snake, living in a non-arid Mediterranean area, is indeed the only one to show vernal spermatogenesis.
