Abstract: The influence of exogenous testosterone on the epidermal glands i.e. ß-glands and pre-a nal glands, of Hemidactylus jlaviviridis was studied 15 and 30 days post treatment during breeding and non-breeding phases of gonadal cycle. Parameters l ike length and breadth of pre-anal glands and their cellular and nuclear dimensions, appearance of further development of ß-glands were considered. In general , it was found that the changes observed 30 days post treatment were more obvious, however, 15 days of treatment did influence both the glands studied, to some extent. Also the exogenous hormone showed pronounced effect during non-breeding period than during the breeding period.
