The morphology of the gular valve of the Nile crocodile was studied on the heads of eight 2.5–3‐year‐old commercially raised Nile crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus). A description of the macroscopic and microscopic features of the gular valve is presented and the results are compared with published information on this species and other Crocodylia. The histological features are supplemented by information supplied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Anatomically, the dorsal and ventral… Expand
On the median pharyngeal valve of the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis)
TLDR
The middle ear cavities of crocodilians have complex connections with the pharyngeal lumen, including lateral and median components which both open into a single chamber located on the dorsal midline of thepharynx, which is herein termed the median pharynx valve. Expand
Histological and Histochemical Studies on the Esophagus, Stomach and Small Intestines of Varanus niloticus
TLDR
The aim of the current study was to investigate the morphological structure of one of the most common reptilian species in Egypt, Varanus niloticus or Nile monitor, and to detect the different types of the mucous contents of the gastro-intestinal tract. Expand

TLDR
The nasal cavity of the American alligator contains two different chemosensory systems incorporated in the same sensory epithelium: the olfactory system proper and solitary chemosENSory cells. Expand
