Here's 13 of the most common: |
Choose any two...
Tapeworms: taenias - fish tapeworm, beef tapeworm, and pork tapeworm. This worm is wide and one half to one inch long, and is usually white/gray in color.
White worms: They come in all sizes from tiny pinworms to those that look like spaghetti or angel hair pasta.
Red worms: These look just like earthworms. They exude from the colon wrapped in balls. They reach up to 6 inches in length.
Inch worms: These are thick (pencil size), black and bumpy and about 2 inches long.
Black worms: These are 1 - 12 inches in length and leave the colon wrapped in 'yellow acid water' mixed together. They nest deep, impacted in the colon wall.
Pinworms: Tiny parasites that wiggle out about 3/4' long and thicker than white worms.
Hookworms: Curved about 6' long, and grayish. Infestation is as high as 50% worldwide. Hookworms grip the intestinal wall and suck blood.
'Little Fish': About 1/2' long, these are fish-type parasites with heads and tails, and they swim out of the colon in schools.
Threadworms: Cream-colored parasites as thin as a thread. They often come out by the hundreds.
'Fuzz Balls': Round parasites with fur-like growth on them. About 1/4-3/4' in diameter, yellow in color.
'Spiders': Look like a spider and are colored brown, often 1' long.
'Stickpin Worms': One inch long and a head like a pea, perfectly round. Small ones are white, adults are black.
Plasmodium from mosquitos
