The features of histological structure of the skin and placoid scales are described. Also, architectural peculiarities of the collagen stroma of the skin are marked. Morphometrical indexes of the data together with the qualimetric analysis of the assessment of the degree of variability of studied parameters are presented. The relief of crowns of placoid scales is described, and these data may be used for taxonomical identification as these species-specific features have diagnostic value.
