The stomachs of 100 free-ranging black caimans (Melanosuchus niger Spix, 1825) from the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve, Amazonas state, Brazil, were examined for parasitism and pathologic lesions. All animals were harvested for human consumption. Ascaridoid nematodes were found in 67 caimans and were identified as Brevimulticaecumsp. These parasites were associated with focally extensive, chronic gastric ulcers and formation of localized intramural granulomas containing nematodes. All…

Sustainable wildlife extraction and the impacts of socio-economic change among the Kukama-Kukamilla people of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, Peru
Abstract Throughout the tropics, hunting and fishing are critical livelihood activities for many Indigenous peoples. However, these practices may not be sustainable following recent socio-economic
Morphological and morphometric features of nematode-cysts in Gymnotus inaequilabiatus liver in the Brazilian Pantanal.
TLDR
Morphological characteristics of hepatic tissue and cysts-nematodes measures suggest that G. inaequilabiatus acts as a paratenic host to nematodes in the larval stage.

Diet, Gastric Parasitism, and Injuries of Caimans (Caiman, Melanosuchus, and Paleosuchus) in the Peruvian Amazon
TLDR
Novel squamate and fish species in the diet of Amazonian caimans and overall dietary findings consistent with that of other caiman diet literature are reported.
Nematode infection in liver of the fish Gymnotus inaequilabiatus (Gymnotiformes: Gymnotidae) from the Pantanal Region in Brazil: pathobiology and inflammatory response
TLDR
Examining Brevimulticaecum sp.-infected tuvira liver at the ultrastructural level showed that the larvae were efficiently sequestered within the granulomas, most of the inflammatory components were confined within the thickness of thegranuloma, and the parenchyma was relatively free of immune cells and without fibrosis.

TLDR
The genus Multicaecum Baylis 1923, sensu Hartwich 1957, was found to be heterogeneous, comprising species which are released to two distinct genera, namely Multicasecum Bavlis, 1923 and Brevimulticaecu, 1923, which are discussed in relation to the other genera of ascaridoid nematodes in crocodilians.

Gastric nematodes of the Paraguayan caiman, Caiman yacare (Alligatoridae).
TLDR
Examination of the stomach contents of 115 Caiman yacare Daudin, 1802, from Paraguay revealed the presence of the nematodes Brevimulticaecum baylisi (Travassos, 1933) and Brevimults stekhoveni (Baylis, 1947), which are new host and distribution records.
Diseases of young captive crocodiles in Papua New Guinea.
TLDR
To identify causes of mortality in young captive crocodiles, detailed necropsy and laboratory examination was done and it was concluded that coccidiosis, bacterial septicaemia with Gram-negative organisms, and metazoan parasitism including ascariasis and pentastomiasis were major infectious diseases.

TLDR
Djardinascaris madagascariensis was present in most of the infected hosts, while the remaining species were mostly represented in single collections in one to three hosts.
