Twelve linear morphometric traits were measured with a digital calliper to a resolution of one millimetre: 1: snout-vent length
(SVL), from the tip of the snout to the rear margin of the cloaca; 2: head length, from the tip of the snout to the gular fold; 3: maximum head width; 4: head width between the eye orbits; 5: head width at the gular fold; 6: maximum head height; 7: interorbital distance, equivalent to the minimum distance between the eyes; 8: forelimb length from the point of insertion to the tip of the longest finger; 9: hindlimb length from the point of insertion to the tip of the longest toe; 10: axilla-to-groin length; 11: tail length; and 12: trunk length, calculated as SVL minus head length.
Distinctly black with white to yellow bands on its body, duhol matapang has an average snout-vent length
of 500 to 750 millimeters.
However, some studies have found no relationship between acoustic properties and morphological characteristics, such as snout-vent length
and head length (Penna, 2004; Marquez et al., 2005; Cui et al., 2012).
(2003) reported the earliest onset of sexual maturity in captivity at five years of age, with a snout-vent length
(SVL) of 81 cm and body mass 19.8 kg.
To enable a correlation of vascular corrosion casts with olfactory organs' anatomy and morphology one adult female (body weight: 78.8 grams, snout-vent length
: 90 mm) and one male Xenopus (body weight: 78 grams; snout-vent length
: 70 mm) were killed by immersion within an overdose of MS 222 (0.5 %; Aldrich Chemicals, St.
petasatus males average 55 mm in snout-vent length
(SVL) and females average 70 mm in SVL, whereas male I.
We measured snout-vent length
(to nearest 0.1 cm using a plastic ruler), head width (to nearest 0.01 cm using a digital caliper), and head length (to nearest 0.01 cm using a digital caliper) of each specimen (one specimen was inadvertently not measured, thus n for measurements is 42).
We used 17 snakes (nine females and eight males), with an average snout-vent length
(SVL) of 99.29 [+ or -] 10.21 cm (mean [+ or -] standard deviation) and average head length (HL) of 3.02 [+ or -] 0.33 mm.
The animal was active, appeared in good body condition, and had a snout-vent length
of 5.5 cm and a total length of 9.7 cm (Fig 1A).
At day 490, the LDG had exhibited compensatory growth and had attained the same snout-vent length
and mass as the high diet group.
We captured, identified, and measured (snout-vent length
, SVL, mm) salamanders we encountered.
For each amphibian and reptile captured during our burning and grazing study, we recorded species, details on size (e.g., total length, tail length, snout-vent length
, carapace length, and weight via Pesola scales, where appropriate for the species), and trap type (funnel, coverboard, pitfall, or observational).
