Ancylostoma Hookworm

Ancylostoma Hookworm

Ancylostoma is a genus of hookworm whose species attach to the intestines of hosts in order to directly take blood meals from the small arteries they contain. The common name of the parasites stems from the characteristic hook-like appendages of their mouths, which are equipped with cutting plates for piercing the intestinal wall.
