Materials for histology, histochemistry and electron microscopy were taken from the urinary bladder of Rock hyraxes of the genera procavia and heterohyrax .These two genera are hole- dwellers which most probably do not drink water but may get it from their feed composed of herbs and bushes. The historical findings revealed some variations in the amount of glycogen in different cell layers. A comparative ultra structural study of the epithelium of the urinary bladder of rock hyrax , masai giraffe and kongoni was carried out .The results have revealed some morphological differences in the epithelial cells of the urinary bladder….
