Scolex (head) of a pork tapeworm, Taenia solium Featured 10 Sep 2002 Image

Scolex (head) of a pork tapeworm, Taenia solium

Tapeworm head. Light micrograph of the scolex (head) of the adult pork tapeworm, Taenia solium. At top is a rosette of hooks; at lower left and right are rounded suckers. The hooks and suckers are the means by which the tapeworm attaches itself to the intestinal walls of its host. Humans are the main host of this parasite, which infects some 4 million people worldwide. Tapeworms have no digestive systems of their own but absorb directly through their skin the food ingested and broken down by the host. Adult tapeworms may grow 5-10 metres in length. They may cause diarrhoea, weight loss, abdominal discomfort. Treatment is with ant- helmintic drugs. Magnification: x32 at 6x6cm size

Coelacanth fish fin Featured 10 Sep 2002 Image

Coelacanth fish fin

Fin of dead coelacanth fish (Latimeria chalumnae). This fish uses its lobed fins to swim, moving them in the same way as a tetrapod walking on land. It does not use them to walk on the sea floor, however. The coelacanth flourished in the Mesozoic era, from 400-60 million years ago. It was thought to be extinct until one was caught off South Africa in 1938. It inhabits rocky coastal regions in the Indo-Pacific, at depths of around 150-700 metres. By day it shelters in a cave, emerging at night to hunt smaller fish and squid near the seabed. An adult coelacanth may reach a length of two metres. Photographed in the Comoros Islands
