Abstract
    The sexual cycle of male , including the phenomenon of penis shedding, has been known since the classical paper by Linke (1933). Grahame (1969) provided a more detailed description of the morphological aspects of penis shedding, whereas the current study is focussed on statistical and histological aspects.
