Prevalence of egg-laying disorders and hematology and blood chemical parameters were analyzed in free-ranging common chameleons (Chamaeleo chamaeleon) from southern Spain. During four reproductive seasons oviposition failures occurred only during dry years. Egg binding appeared to be an important cause of mortality. Oviductal eggs of dystocic females were longer and wider than those of females with normal oviposition. Blood cell counts, white blood cell differentials, hematocrit, and… CONTINUE READING
