Abstract:
Rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) is an endemic primate in and around to northern India. Rhesus monkey is diurnal omnivorous, feeding mainly on fruit, but also eating seeds, roots, buds, bark, and cereals. They are highly adapted to live in the wild and in human settlements and interact with humans than any other wild animal. There is a great chance for spreading zoonosis from monkeys to humans. Understanding their gastrointestinal parasites (GIP) prevalence is important, both for public health and for the health of the animals they infect. Current, study was conducted to provide baseline data on faecal parasites in rhesus monkey of Haryana state. Total 90 faecal samples of were collected from three zoo of Haryana viz. Mini Zoo Pipli (MZP), Rohtak Zoo (RZ) and Mini Zoo Bhiwani (MZB). Simple flotation and sedimentation methods were used to examine fecal samples. Overall prevalence of GIP infection in rhesus monkey of Haryana was 84%. While prevalence of GIP infection in different mini zoo was 83% (MZP), 90% (RZ) and 80% (MZB). Overall prevalence of different parasite was Strongyloides spp (52.2%), Trichuris spp. (19%), Ascaris Spp. (8%) and Balantidium coli (6%).
