The lacunar cell layer in rat snake epidermis contains many characteristic intracellular vacuoles. The lipid nature of these large round vacuoles was demonstrated by histochemical and ultrastructural investigations. Rhomboid‐shaped clefts, similar to cholesterol ester clefts, were observed in proximity to the vacuoles.
