Epidemiology of an intestinal parasite (Spirometra spp.) in two populations of African lions (Panthera leo)






Parasitology 118: 407-415

Epidemiology of an intestinal parasite (Spirometra spp.) in two populations of African lions (Panthera leo)

Spirometra spp. infections were studied in 2 populations of lions in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. The 2 lion populations lived in different habitats and were known to differ genetically: lions in the Serengeti were outbred, whereas lions in the Ngorongoro Crater were inbred. Faecal samples were collected from 112 individually known lions between March 1991 and November 1992.
