Animal parasites

Parasites are living organisms that live in or on another living organism and derive their food supply from that host.

Ectoparasites live outside the host, e.g. lice, fleas.

Endoparasites live inside the host, e.g. tapeworms or threadworms, roundworms and flukes. The presence of any parasite on the body is known as an infestation.
