Abstract

Before this section of the Academy last year data were presented on the rate of oxygen consumption in certain turtles, which were interpreted to represent both "basal" and "active" rates in these forms. Data on these points were thought to be of some value in connection with the question as to whether a beginning or a remnant of a heat-regulatory mechanism might not be found in this representative of the reptilian group. While it is the hope of the writer to continue the investigations with the turtles, it so happened that specimens of the snakes in Professor Guthrie's collection were made available for the following observations.
