Many chelonia produce females at high temperatures and males at low temperatures. • Some lizards, such as the Rainbow lizard (Agama agama) produce the opposite: males at high temperatures and females at low temperatures. 11 • (a) Snake tail showing normal inverted hemipenis lying caudal to cloaca. (b) Hemipenis everted out through cloaca. The male The testes produce the sperm and also secrete the hormones responsible for mating behavior and secondary sexual characteristics. Testicular size varies with season and therefore with light, temperature, and food supply.

The bladder is often a reservoir of fluid in tortoises and, being osmotically permeable, substantial water can be reabsorbed from it in times of drought. Aquatic turtles use their bladder to help reabsorb sodium and as a buoyancy aid (Bentley 1976; Fox 1977; Minnich 1982). Reptile kidneys lack a loop of Henle, pelvis, and pyramids. The reptile nephron consists of a glomerulus, a long, thick proximal convoluted tubule, a short, thin intermediate segment, and a shorter distal tubule. In male snakes and lizards the terminal segment of the kidney has become a sexual segment.
