The present investigation was conducted to examine the role of camel’s milk on semen characteristic in immobilization stressed rats. The rats were divided into four groups; control (untreated), camel’s milk treated, immobilization stressed and camel’s milk treated immobilization stressed group. Immobilization stress resulted in significant decrease in both body and reproductive organs weight, sperm count, alive sperm percentage, mass motility percentage, plasma testosterone level and antioxidative stress parameters, while, it caused significant increase in adrenal gland weight, sperm abnormalities percentage, plasma glucose, corticosterone and malondialdehyde levels. Administration of camel’s milk to rats exposed to immobilization stress significantly amended the estimated parameters although not all were similar to control levels. It could be concluded from the present study that camel’s milk administration before immobilization stress improves semen characteristics in rats.
