  • Average field body temperatures of pregnant female Podarcis muralis (32.620C) were significantly lower than that of males and non-pregnant females (overall average: 33.740C). However, when tested in terrarium with a strong thermal gradient in a limited space, which represents a low-cost environment for thermoregulation, neither body temperature nor position in the thermal gradient differed among groups of sex and reproductive condition. Body temperatures selected in thermal gradient (overall… CONTINUE READING
