Abstract:

Present investigation was carried out on a single specimen of heart of yellow bellied sea snake, which accidentally came to the sea shore with the fisherman’s net. Since this snake is found in approximately 100m. deep sea thus not very common to cite and study. After the death this specimens was preserved in 10% neutral buffered formalin and observed for its morphology. The literature cited revealed that meager information was available on the anatomy of heart of this species of snake thus present study was planned on the gross anatomy of the heart of yellow bellied sea snake. The heart was three chambered with the complete division of atria but the ventricular cavity was incompletely divided. The sinus venosus was the common cavity for confluence of anterior and posterior vana cava and the jugular vein was opened with anterior vena cava. Pulmonary vein was single which later divided in to two branches. The length-width index for the atria was 1.33 whereas it was 1.67 for the ventricle.
