TAYLOR, William A; SKINNER, John D  e  BOOMKER, Joop. Nematodes of the small intestine of African buffaloes, Syncerus caffer, in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Onderstepoort j. vet. res. [online]. 2013, vol.80, n.1, pp.00-00. ISSN 2219-0635.

The abundance and distribution of parasitic helminths in populations of African buffaloes, | Syncerus caffer, have not been well documented. A total of 28 buffaloes of different ages and sexes were sampled in the Kruger National Park, South Africa, for nematodes of the small intestine. Three nematode species were identified, namely Cooperia fuelleborni, Cooperia hungi and Trichostrongylus deflexus, with C. hungi being a new country record for African buffalo in South Africa. The overall prevalence was 71% and the average number of worms was 2346 (range: 0-15 980). This is a small burden for such a large mammal. Sex, age and body condition of the buffaloes had no significant effect on worm occurrence.
