skinks (reptilia: scincidae) have highly conserved karyotypes as revealed by chromosome painting.skinks represent the most diversified squamate reptiles with a great variation in body size and form, and are found worldwide in a variety of habitats. their remarkable diversification has been accompanied by only a few chromosome rearrangements, resulting in highly-conservative chromosomal complements of these lizards. in this study cross-species chromosome painting using scincus scincus (2n = 32) as the source genome, was used to detect the chromosomal rearrangements and homologies between the ...201020215726
cryptosporidiosis in a fire skink (lepidothyris fernandi) and molecular identification of infecting speciescryptosporidiosis is an infectious protozoan disease that affects a wide range of animals including reptiles. this is the first report of cryptosporidiosis in a fire skink (lepidothyris fernandi), an insectivorous reptile commonly found in tropical west africa. faecal sample was collected from a fire skink at necropsy for the detection of parasites by faecal sedimentation method, ziehl-neelsen (zn) acid-fast staining, nested polymerase chain reaction (pcr) and nucleotide sequencing. sections of ...201829717577
