Cestodes, also known as tapeworms, are a diverse group of parasitic flatworms that can infest various animals including dogs, beef cattle, fleas, and pigs. These microscopic creatures have been captured in stunning detail through scanning electron microscopy (SEM), revealing their intricate structures and unique characteristics. One captivating image (SEM C016 / 9039) showcases the dog tapeworm. This particular species is commonly found in dogs and can cause health issues if left untreated. Its segmented body and hook-like mouthparts are clearly visible under high magnification. Moving on to another fascinating capture (SEM C016 / 9079), we encounter the beef tapeworm. Infesting cattle, this cestode poses a threat to livestock industries worldwide. The SEM image highlights its elongated body with numerous segments that enable it to absorb nutrients from its host. In contrast, the flea tapeworm takes center stage in images SEM C016 / 9034 and SEM C016 / 9035. As the name suggests, these tiny parasites primarily infest fleas but can also affect cats and dogs when ingested during grooming activities. The SEM reveals their slender bodies adorned with hooks for attachment. Continuing our exploration of cestodes' diversity, we come across an intriguing specimen (SEM C016 / 9080). This generic tapeworm image represents the broader family of these parasites characterized by their ribbon-like bodies composed of multiple segments called proglottids. Another striking photograph (SEM C016 / 9077) captures yet another variation within this family—a different type of tapeworm displaying distinct features such as sucker-like organs for attachment to its host's intestines. The collection wouldn't be complete without showcasing pork tapeworms depicted in images SEM C016 / 9071 and SEM C016/9072 respectively. These parasites infect pigs but can also pose risks to humans if undercooked pork is consumed.
