 Title    Cast Skin Lipids of the Indian Python (Python molurus bivittatus, Kühl, 1820)  
 Abstract    Cast skins o f various snakes and in addition one lizard were found to contain 3 .5 -8 .6 % extractable lipid material. Lipids obtained from a cast skin o f the Indian python were analyzed in detail indicating the presence o f hydrocarbons (squalene, cholestadiene and alkanes), monoester waxes, sterol esters, diester waxes, triglycerides, sterols, free fatty acids and even more polar lipids. A m ong the monoester wax constituents odd-numbered secondary alkanols were found. It is assumed that the above lipids originate from cells o f the past integumental generation and that they play an important facilitating role during the sloughing process.
