Fellow Parasitologists - two questions:
1. Does anyone know a source for purchasing microscope slides of
Cryptospordium oocysts? I would like to have my parasit students look at
these in lab.
2. I've seen a few articles (recent one in the St. Paul Pioneer Press)
concerning a parasite of frogs (likely a metacercaria) that develops as
adults in garter snakes and is responsible for the limb deformities that
have been appearing ranid frogs. I assume that it is an Ochetosomatid of
some sort. Does anyone know which species it is?
