Abstract:
The study has been designed to assess the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites in captive Blackbuck of Barnawapara wildlife sanctuary. A total of 60 faecal samples were collected over a period of 12 months during summer, rainy and winter seasons and observed with direct, sedimentation, flotation method. Present studies showed that the overall prevalence rate of gastro-intestinal parasites in Blackbuck was 48.33%. In current investigation no protozoan or cestode cyst, oocyst or coccidian infection were studied. The prevalence recorded in Blackbuck was Strongyle 25.00%, Amphistome sp 20.00% and Fasciola sp. 03.33%. The seasonal investigation of gastrointestinal parasites in Blackbuck revealed a statistically significant (p<0.05) higher prevalence rate in rainy (65%) than in winter (45.0%) and summer (35%). In rainy season, the prevalence of Amphistome spp. was relatively higher than Strongyle spp., while the reverse was recorded in winter season with a higher prevalence rate of. Strongyle spp.
