Abstract Semen samples were collected by rectal probe electroejaculation techniques from groups of adult male rhesus monkeys. Mean values for 249 ejaculates from 100 monkeys were a sperm concentration of 419.43 x 10(6)/cm3 with 53.9\% of the sperm showing progressive movement. Sperm concentration showed a positive rank correlation coefficient with sperm motility. Significant motility and concentration differences were found among groups. Seasonal differences were noted but were not significant. The study provides data that will aid investigators who are screening animals for studies involving reproductive potential.
