Under a high magnification, this micrograph depicts both, an egg from the “human whipworm”, Trichuris trichiura (Lt), the causal agent of “Trichuriasis”, and the “dog whipworm”, T. vulpis (Rt). Morphologically, T. vulpis ova resemble those of T. trichiura, but as is clearly visible here, are nearly twice their size.
