Abstract:

The aim of this study was to study the prevalence of gastrointestinal nematodes in wild carnivores reared in captive conditions in 03 Zoos of Chhattisgarh. A total of 278 faecal samples of captive wild carnivores were collected which were examined by floatation, sedimentation, McMaster and copro-culture method. Microscopic examination of faecal samples revealed overall prevalence of gastrointestinal nematodiasis in Maitri Bagh Zoo, Bhilai to be 34.78%, Nandanvan Zoo and Safari, Raipur (15.47%) and Kanan Pendari Zoo, Bilaspur (29.05%) respectively. The prevalence of nematode infection in different captive wild carnivores was found to be 22.91%, 47.61%, 32.85%, 13.63%, 22.91%, 10.52% and 0% in lion, leopard, Royal Bengal tiger, hyaena, jackal, fox and jungle cat respectively. Among all 03 zoos under study, overall prevalence of gastrointestinal nematodiasis was highest in Maitri Bagh Zoo, Bhilai followed by Kanan Pendari Zoo, Bilaspur and Nandanvan Zoo and Safari, Raipur respectively. The prevalence of nematode infection in different captive wild carnivores was found to be highest in leopard (47.61%) followed by Royal Bengal tiger (32.85), lion and jackal (22.91%), fox (10.52%) and jungle cat (0%) respectively.
