The aim pf this paper was to study the effect of high temperature onmale rabbit performance. The live weight , the rectal temperature, the consumption of food and water, the excreta and urine produced and the sperm quality were significantly different between 18°C and 30°C. The return to neutral thermal conditions induced a quick recovery in the rabbits except for the sperm characteristics of two animals, which differred from the original quality, also after 70d the return to neutral conditions. In conclusion, we can state that a period at 30°C, even if it doesn't reduce libido, induces temporary alterations in the main physiological parameters and prolonged or permanent modifications of the sperm.
