Caption: Heartworms. Light micrograph of three Dirofilaria immitis heartworms. During the adult stage of their life cycle, these nematode worms live in the right ventricle of animal hearts, where they can remain for many years. They are spread from host to host through the bites of mosquitoes. Primary hosts of the heartworm are canines including dogs, wolves, coyotes and foxes. Cats, ferrets and sea lions are less common hosts and, very rarely, humans can also be infected. Magnification: x120 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
