Testicular histology was similar to that reported by Goldberg and Parker (1975) for the colubrid snakes, Masticophis
taeniatus and Pituophis catenifer (= P.
Interestingly, we did see the same behaviors in the field as in the laboratory when geckos were disturbed for maintenance or feeding, suggesting that additional tests with a more aggressive snake, such as Masticophis
flagellum, might be informative.
