Caption: Horse fly gut. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the gut of a horse fly (Tabanus sp.). Male horse flies feed on nectar, but females feed on blood, inflicting a painful bite on horses, humans and other large mammals. They may act as vectors for several Trypanosoma sp. parasites, which they can transmit to livestock animals when they feed. The life cycle of these parasites includes a multiplication stage within the gut of the horse fly. Magnification: x250 at 6x7cm size.
