Abstract

We determined reference ranges for hematology and serum biochemistry in 39 freeranging freshwater crocodiles (Crocodylus johnstoni). Animals were captured from Windjana Gorge in Western Australia and physically restrained for blood sampling from the supravertebral vein. No significant sex differences were found. Four animals were infected with a haemogregarine-like intraerythrocytic parasite.
