The study was conducted to compare the testicular morphometry parameters of right and left testis as well as their correlation in non-descript breed of goats. A total 16 mature testicles were collected from the Government approved slaughter house, in air-tight sterile cryobox (4-5°C) and brought to the laboratory within 2-4 hours after slaughtering the buck. The epididymis was carefully separated from each testis then testicular measurements were recorded. The mean epididymal length of right and left testes were observed as 12.01±1.33 cm and 12.36±1.44 cm; epididymal weight as 09.30±1.80 gm and 09.65±1.87 gm; testicular length as 05.91±0.91cm and 06.23±0.89 cm; testicular weight as 58.29±3.80 gm and 63.77±4.01 gm; testicular diameter as 04.19±0.59 cm and 04.44±0.69 cm; testicular volume as 54.38±4.39 ml and 62.50±4.46 ml and the testicular density as 01.11±0.41 gm/ml and 01.04±0.31 gm/ml, respectively. The correlation coefficient of various biometrical parameters of right and left testicles were significantly (p
