Abstract

Administration of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) (50 IU/Day) to the sexually quiescent snake Cerberus rhynchops for 14 and 28 days had no stimulatory effect on the seminiferous tubules of the regressed testes, but had a stimulatory effect in the epididymis. However, the testes of the animals treated for 28 days showed accumulation of lipid, without any spermatogenic activity in the seminiferous tubules.
