Heavy metal exposure in animals can lead to profound effect on growth, development and biochemical constituents. It is necessary that the heavy metal toxicity be well documented and adequate precaution should be taken in mother and fetus to decrease its detrimental effects. An experimental study was performed with viviparous animal Heterometrousfulvipes to access the cumulative effect of chronic heavy metals exposure on lipid metabolism. Chronic heavy metal exposure resulted in decrease in biochemical constituents of lipids, with decrease in hepato-pancreatic weight, hepato -somatic index and embryonic length and weight.
