Tapeworms and Mammals
Transcript of Tapeworms and Mammals
WILL YOU BE MY HOST?
Hi, my name is Phil. I am a tapeworm, but have nowhere to live. Will you be my host???
I can live in any mammal that has intestines. However, most of my friends like to go inside of pets such as dogs and cats, so if you are reading this and are a dog or cat, you'll be perfect for me!
What Kind of Host I Need
Your probably thinking: "Why should I let you in my body??"
Well, you see I need a host to survive, and given that you have intestines, and I can live in them, why not?
How Will I Get Into you?
I have now convinced you to let me in your body. That's Great!!! But how will I get inside you body??? Well, it's simple. Tapeworms (like me) get into the body when a person eats or drinks something that's infected with a worm or its eggs. Once inside the body, the tapeworm's head (mine in this case) attaches to the inner wall of the intestines. The tapeworm (that's me!) feeds off the food that the host is digesting.
I hope that you will like my company... INSIDE OF YOU! MUAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
