Abstract
Among hunters in East Africa, the zebra is reputed to be more heavily parasitized with intestinal worms than any other game species. Quantitative data are lacking and undoubtedly the reputation is largely based on the ease with which the large intestine is inadvertently cut when the abdomen is opened. The ingesta then usually appear to consist almost entirely of a seething mass of small white worms identifiable as Crossocephalus viruparus.
