Morphometric studies have been made on the testis of 20 Murrah buffaloes during postnatal development. Testicular weight in relation to body weight and testicular volume, increased from 0.01% to 0.07% and 1.05 to 235.68 cm3 from 1 day-old to adult (>6 years) buffalo bulls respectively. Tubular volume percentage showed initial decrease from 77.0% at birth to 61.0% at 6 months of age and again increased to 81.0% in adults.
