Title: Oxygen Uptake By Typhlonectes Compressicaudus Related To The Body Weight
Author: Goncalves A.A.

Abstract: 1. 1. Oxygen consumption by Typhlonectes compressicaudus has been determined in aerial conditions and under obligatory submersion at 25°C. 2. 2. The O2 uptake by skin and lungs can be expressed as related to the body weight according to the equation: V ̇o2(ml/hr) = 0.120 W0.782. The correlation coefficient is 0.932. 3. 3. In animals submersed in O2 satured tapwater the relationship between O2 uptake and body weight can be determined by the equation: V ̇o2(ml/hr) = 0.118 W0.496. The correlation coefficient is 0.972. 4. 4. T. compressicaudus, is a typical aquatic Gymnophiona. In spite of a predominant aerial respiration, it can resist up to 40 min submersed in the aquaria, under normal conditions, and up to 120-150 min in the Schlieper's respirometer. © 1978.
