Abstract
To study the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites of Cervus unicolor, 35 faecal samples were collected from Katepurna Sanctuary during the period from February 2014 to April 2016. Twenty nine samples were found to be infected with gastrointestinal parasites and overall prevalence rate was 82.85%. Paramphistomum sp. (34.28%), Ascaris sp. (28.57%) Fasciola sp. (17.14%), stomach worm (17.14%), hook worm (14.28%), Strongyloides sp. (5.71%), Balantidium coli (5.71%) Oesophagostomum sp. (2.85%), Eimeria sp. (2.85%) & Mixed type of infections of Ascaris sp. Was found in 5 different scat samples or droppings. Seasonal prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites in summer and winter were 80.01% and 17.3% respectively. This study provided a first overview on parasites in Sambar in the Katepurna Sanctuary, but to evaluate parasite transmission dynamics much more studies were required on livestock and on wild herbivores.
