The 1st executive conference for the establishment of the Society for Asian Zoo and Wildlife Medicine was held during this meeting and the place and time for the 3rd academic meeting was decided. A poster on the anatomy of the female reproductive organs of Pangolin was presented and much valuable information was exchanged among the participants.From October 30th to November 3rd, I visited Yangon Zoological Gardens in Yangon, Myanmmar. The carcasses of a mouse deer and an albino individual were dissected by myself and the chief surgeon of this zoo. The location of the salivary glands, the degree of development of the stomach of a new-born baby, and the anatomical characteristics of the albino individual were studied. There was also a discussion and exchange of information with the faculty staff of the Department of Zoology, Yangon University, on the biology, habits and the breeding behavior of the mouse deer.
