Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Dog tapeworm cysticercoid stage (Taenia pisiformis) found in peritoneal cavity of an intermediate rabbit host. The tapeworm larvae develop into the cysticercoid stage in the host rabbit liver and intestinal tissue with the scolex being inverted into a fluid filled bladder. Tapeworms have no specialized digestive system but feed on the partially digested food in the intestines by direct absorption through their entire skin surface. Adult tapeworms may grow 5-10 meters in length. Magnification x8 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
