Abstract: The labial salivary glands of the spiny-tailed, lizard (BLANDFORD) Were used in morph metric, histological and histochemical investigation. Both supra and infralabial glands are of the compound tubule-acinar type and are of a mixed nature containing both mucous and mucoserous cells. The mucous cells secrete and elaborate neutral mucosubstances, sialomucins and hyaluronidase resistant sulfomucins, whereas the mucoserous cells secrete cells secrete protein radicals as well. The histoenzymological tests used have detected alkaline phosphatase, succinic dehydrogenase and carbonic anhydrase in these glands.
