Abstract: We examined 42 maned wolf scats in an unprotected and disturbed area of Cerrado in southeastern Brazil. We identified six helminth endoparasite taxa, being Phylum Acantocephala and Family Trichuridae the most prevalent. The high prevalence of the Family Ancylostomatidae indicates a possible transmission via domestic dogs, which are abundant in the study area. Nevertheless, our results indicate that the endoparasite species found are not different from those observed in protected or least disturbed areas, sugge… Show more

“…The stabilization of the parasite accumulation curve demonstrated that the amount of samples collected from C. brachyurus, L. gutullus and C. familiaris was sufficient for all parasitological analyses, which is extremely important since it is not known how many individuals of each of these mammals inhabit the park. In Serra da Calçada, Minas Gerais, Brazil, faeces from C. brachyurus were found to present a lower richness index (R = 6) than that observed for the same species in the present study [28].…”

“…In general, helminths were more frequent than protozoa in the faeces from carnivores. High frequencies of helminths have also been observed in stool samples from carnivores in Thailand, Mexico, Bolivia and Brazil [16,[18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29]. In this study, the high frequency of helminths showed that the environment inhabited by the animals presented conditions that were favourable for maintenance of nematode, cestode, trematode and acanthocephalan life cycles.…”

“…However, due to habitat loss, roadkill, diseases and retaliation for predation of domestic animals (Curi et al, 2010;Freitas et al, 2015;Massara et al, 2015), the maned wolf is now considered vulnerable in Brazil (MMA, 2014), with a projected population reduction of 30% expected in the next 20 years (Paula et al, 2013). This decline is mostly linked to the current and forecasted devastation of approximately 50% of the Brazilian savannah due to agricultural expansion (Queirolo et al, 2011).…”

“…Readings were obtained from three slides of each processed sample. The diagnosis of parasitic structures was performed under optical microscopy according to Soulsby (1982), Gilioli and Silva (2000), and Massara et al (2015). The term frequency was used according to Bush et al (1997).…”
