Sub chronic toxicity study of culture filtrate of Rhizopus oryzae isolated from the fungal contaminated ground nut hay was conducted in rats. The fungi was isolated from the contaminated groundnut hay, which caused mycotoxicosis in cross bred cattle, which  exhibited the clinical signs of  colic, tenesmus, ruminal atony,anorexia, bleeding from nostrils, rectum and fly bite site. The rats were gavaged with culture filtrate at the dose level of 0.5, 1 and 2 ml daily for 90 days.  Clinical signs observed were diarrhea, weakness, slight arching of back and swollen forehead. Loss of balance in the legs region seen. There was a significant increase    (P
