      A comparative study on the myocardial SDH levels in certain representative vertebrates revealed interesting variations. TheCybium myocardium exhibited relatively lesser SDH levels, whereasRana, despite its diving habits, had a higher level with significant variations between the two ventricular halves.Calotes, an active terrestrial form, showed the highest enzyme level among the reptiles. The SDH activity of the avian myocardia are quite high, withColumba having a greater level thanGallus. The myocardia of the actively flying forms (Columba andPteropus) exhibited higher enzyme levels in the right ventricle than the left ventricle.
