The labial salivary glands of the spiny-tailed lizard, Uromastyx microlepis (Blandford) were used in morphometric, histological and histochemical investigations. Both supra and infralabial glands are of the compound tubulo-acinar type and are of a mixed nature containing both mucous and mucoserous cells. The mucous cells secrete and elaborate neutral mucosubstances, sialomucins and hyaluronidase resistant sulfomucins, whereas the mucoserous cells secrete protein radicals as well. The histoenzymological tests used have detected alkaline phosphatase, succinic dehydrogenase and carbonic anhydrase in these glands.
