    Abstract

    Various stages of intra-uterine embryos of Sphyrna blocliii collected from the Gulf of Mannar are described and discussed. Uterine compartments are formed in this species which exhibit multipb pregnancy. An embryonic membrane store ch.amiber is present in each uterine comrpartment. The placenta of this species is of yolk-sac type and is formed at the stage in between 125 mm and 210 mm; yolk persist in the yolk-sac even when the placental connection is established with the mother. The placantation process observed in this species is almost similiar to that of S. tiburo and Carcltarhinus dussumieri. The probable gestation period and other details of placentation are discussed.
