Abstract

A uterine rupture of unknown etiology during gestation causing the death in a Rio Cauca caecilian (Typhlonectes natans) and successful anesthesia using tricaine methanesulfonate and cesarean section in three occasions in two other specimens because of suspected dystocia are described. One of the surgeries was performed at an early stage of embryo development, thereby preventing the survival of the neonates.
