Abstract

Investigation of the gross anatomy, histology and histochemistry of the alimentary canal of Gehyra mutilata (Wiegmann) shows it to conform to the basic reptilian plan. The gastric glands contain only one type of cell while the duodenum lacks Brunner's glands. The structure of the gut reflects the gecko's dietary habit.
