Important tapeworm parasites of humans Cestoda is a class of phylum platyhyelminthes. The best-known species of this class are called tapeworms. This is a class of parasitic flatworms, their life histories are vary but they mostly live in the digestive tracts or gut of humans and other vertebrates as adult, and sometimes they are present in the bodies of animals as juveniles. All cestodes contain atleast one and often more than one host. They lack digestive tract, mouth and senory organs, they have unique body extension called microtiches which help in absorption of host nutrients.
Although the most predominant color is red, there are also shades of pink, green, blue and yellow. The mural depicts a serpent that could also be a crocodile whose head, upper jaw, and lower jaw are green. The mouth and face are red, the lips appear to be yellow, and the eye had a gray pupil with a yellow iris and light grey sclera. Protruding from the serpent’s mouth is a tongue in the shape of the pistil of a flower. From the pistil droplets resembling tadpoles are emerging.
Rene Ismail McKenna - C 9th Grade Biology PBA American Lobster - Homarus americanus Ecosystem/Ecology of Homarus americanus Adult American lobsters tend to dwell in depths of below 50 meters. However, some can live at depths of about 750 meters. They can weigh up to 44 pounds and reach a length of about 25 inches, however they are typically around 2 feet long and weigh 3 pounds. The American lobster’s preferable habitat is on rocky surfaces covered with algae, because algae attract animals that the lobsters prey on. This habitat allows the lobster to hide within the cracks, where it can hide from predators in its environment such as flounder, cod, crabs and eels.
Tarantulas are Arthropods, which means they are invertebrates and have an exoskeleton. A tarantula's body consists of two main parts, the cephalothorax and opisthosoma or abdomen. The cephalothorax is the center part of the spider where its fangs are located and the legs and pedipalps connect to the body. The pedipalps are shorter leg appendages located by its mouth that are used by males in mating and also to grip and feel what's in front of it. The abdomen is connected to the cephalothorax by the pedicel which is joint like is allows the abdomen to move freely in many direction.
They also use chemicals called pheromones to leave scent trails for other ants to follow. ANATOMY: The ant anatomy is divided into three main parts. The head, the thorax (middle portion), and the abdomen (metasoma). They have three pairs of legs that are attached to the thorax. The head consists of eyes, jaws and antennae.
Species Profile For Wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) Prepared for MSC 276 – Marine Vertebrate Zoology By Dean Crenshaw firstname.lastname@example.org Submitted: Names and Classification: Scientific Name: Acanthocybium solandri Common Name (English): Wahoo Synonyms: Acanthocybium solandri also known as the: mackerel, queen-fish, barracuda, wahoo fish, kingfish, ono, peto. Family: Scombridae - Wahoo Description: The wahoo has an elongated scaled body which that looks slightly compressed. It is a bluish green towards the dorsal of the body and silvery towards the bottom. There are numerous darker bars running below its lateral line fading towards its ventral part of its body. Its first dorsal fin has around 23-27 spines while the second dorsal fin only has nine finlets.
The operculum is corneous (Alderson 2015). Four main structures of Pomacea urceus can be observed: the foot, visceral mass, mantle and the face. The foot is the soft muscular part that is used to move about. Its visceral mass houses the digestive apparatus and the pericardial cavity. The mantle has the function of secreting the shell and the face consist of two long tentacles, with the eyes being at its base.
The taxonomy of the loa loa starts at the domain “eukaryota,” then the kingdom “animalia,” then the phylum “nematoda,” then the class “chromadorea,” then the order “spirurida,” then the family “onchocercidae,” then the genus “Loa,” and finishes at the species “loa.” 2.) The common name for the Loa Loa worm is the “African eye worm.” 3.) The loa loa worm typically looks like this thin, long, and white worm. The defining characteristics are the thinness and length of their bodies. They are so thin, some infected people can see them fit under the top layers of their skin and eyes.
Costa et al. (2011) studied in fish larva community in an Amazonian estuary. All samples were collected in a 300 µm mesh conical cylindrical plankton net attached to a flow meter (hydro bios) and the net was towed through subsurface water horizontally for 5 minutes at a speed of 1.5 knots. Sample was removed from the net and fixed immediately in 4% formalin. iv.
“Trypanosoma: A Pathogenic Cause of Sleeping Sickness” Introduction Figure 1 Trypanosoma. Trypanosomiasis a genus of asexual unicellular protozoan flagellates that have a spindle-shaped body with an undulating membrane on one side, a single anterior flagellum, and a kinetoplast. These protozoa are transmitted by bloodsucking insect vectors. Half of their life cycle is spent inside of insects and they are spread to humans and domestic animals by insect bites. Trypanosomes acquire micronutrients, carbohydrates, protein, and lipids from their host.
