Biochemical values of red-tailed boa (Boa constrictor)
AbstractIt was determined the average values of the following blood biochemical indicators of boas (Boa constrictor): glucose, urea, creatinine, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine transaminase (ALT), amylase and lipase, and compared the results obtained concerning sex. A total of 12 Boa constrictor specimens were used, seven males and five females. The average of the biochemical indicators between males and females had no significant difference. The traditional biochemical techniques have been useful to determine these indicators to this species.
