Abstract

Males and females of Crotalus durissus terrificus which were born in captivity were used to test artificial insemination techniques. The diluted sperm was introduced into the vagina and after 120 days the first 3 snakes were dissected while in other group of snakes, pregnancy was allowed to run its natural course. All the snakes of the latter group gave birth to live and normal young and no atresic eggs were observed.
