The Museum of Animal Parasitology

Located in the Faculty of Veterinary Science, this Museum originated from the Parasitology Unit’s collecting of parasites inside and outside animals, consisting of, for example, worms, insects, fleas, ticks and protozoa. These were classified or grouped to enable students to learn from real life specimens. The collection grew larger and it was able to serve as a source of learning for students and those interested. The Museum displays examples of worms preserved in aqueous solution, tissue contaminated by worms, fleas, ticks and permanent slides of all types of parasite in cattle, domestic pets and wild animals.
