Caption: Larva of mouse tapeworm. Light micrograph of the budding larval stage (metacestode) of the tapeworm Taenia crassiceps, extracted from a mouse. Bubble- like buds or bladders are seen attached to the main white body of the larva (at centre); each of these buds can form another larva. The larvae develop a head (not visible here) with hooks and they form cysts in the body of the animal host. When the mouse is eaten, the tapeworm is spread to its next host. Tapeworms therefore usually infect two types of animal host, such as pig and cattle tapeworms that can also infect humans. Magnification: x100 at 35mm size.
