However, these findings are ap and thus impossible to be related to gastrointestinal parasitism. For Contracaecum pelagicumin the present study, the mean body length was Further study of Contracaecum pelagicum Nematoda: Spheniscidae from Argentinean coasts. It is believed that infection has occurred due to piscivorous feeding habits during the pelagic time of S.


A pink to bluish-pink hyaline material was formed deep in the gastric glands around the parasites. These parasites may be associated with other diseases, implicating in death of the penguins. However, it was possible to conclude that Magellanic penguins are susceptible to gastrointestinal parasites and that at least two different species of the genus Contracaecum occur in birds captured on the coast of Rio de Janeiro State, thus they may be associated to other diseases, implicating in the death of these penguins.
