Abstract
The pancreatic glutathione levels of birds are higher than that of mammalian species. Refractoriness of birds towards the action of diabetogens may indeed be correlated with this fact. However, the higher pancreatic glutathione value found in owl, in comparison to that of pigeon, seems contradictory since owl is more susceptible to diabetogens.
