Pradeep Kumar, Jitendra Tiwari, Alok Kumar Singh and Daya Shankar

In the present study occurrence of different ecto and endo parasites of Indian hedgehog are reported. In May 2015 an injured hedgehog was observed in the veterinary college campus of DUVASU, Mathura. The animal was brought to the Department of Parasitology for treatment and care. The animal was found infested with ticks that were further identified morphologically as Rhipicephalus turanicus (Acarina: Ixodidae). The coproscopic examination of the faecal samples further revealed the infection of Capillaria spp. and Isospora spp. in the animal. This is the first report of parasites of Indian hedgehog from this part of the world.
