Effect of Cypermethrin on Protein Contents in Lizard Calotes versicolor in Comparison to That in Frog Rana tigrina
Muhammad Zaheer Khan , Farina Fatima and Imtiaz Ahmad

Abstract:
The present study highlights the effect of cypermethrin (0.1 and 1% concentration) on kidney and liver of Calotes versicolor and in Rana tigrina. In the case of Calotes versicolor, a decrease in protein contents was found upto 16 and 40% in liver and 17 and 35% in kidney, respectively. It was observed that protein contents were decreased in Rana tigrina upto 69 and 79% in kidney and 44 and 76% in liver, respectively.

Abdul Haseeb:
Can cypermethrin and imiprothrin kill lizards? A common product in India namely 'Hit' contains these two chemicals. It is mainly used for insect control. But what is the effects of these chemicals on reptiles like lizards and frogs?
