 Title    Life Cycle o f S a rcocystis between Poikilotherm ie H o sts. Lizards are Interm ediate H osts for S. podarcicolubris sp. nov, Snakes Function as D efinitive H o sts  
 Abstract    The role of the W estern W hip snake Coluber viridißavus was demonstrated as a definitive host for Sarcocystis podarcicolubris sp. nov. o f the Italian W all lizard Podarcis sicula and the Tyrrhenian Wall lizard Podarcis tiliquerta. Sporocysts (9.58 x 6.94 (am) of S. podarcicolubris from a naturally infected snake C. viridißavus were fed to a Sarcocystis free lizard P. sicula and via arthropods Musca domestica to another Sarcocystis free lizard P. tiliquerta. About 3 -4 months later sarcocysts could be detected in both lizards. The cysts measured 90 -1 3 0 Jim x 450-550 nm. The cyst wall had 2 .5 -3 |im long villus like protrusions. The sausage-shaped bradyzoites measured circa 7.7 x 2 nm. Refeeding of the experimentally infected lizards to the snake led to a renewed shedding o f sporocysts after a prepatency o f 12 -1 5 days.

 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.
