AbstractOrganochlorine compounds such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and dichlorodiphenyl ethanes (DDTs) are well known as toxic and persistent contaminants that accumulate in the trophic levels of food chains, apparently associated with the habitat and dietary habits. In recent years there has been an increasing concern for these chemicals mainly due to their estrogenic properties. In many oviparous species, PCB pollution can produce severe impacts on eggs leading to embryo death or abnormal embryonic development. It is reported that pollutants can severely affect reptiles and could be contributing to their global decline.
