Abstract

Gastrointestinal nematodes are important helminth parasites in babirusa. This study was conducted to determine the types and prevalence of gastrointestinal nematodes that can infect babirusa in ex-situ conservation, which are Surabaya Zoo and Prigen Safari Park II. Sedimentation and Floatation methods using saturated sucrose were used in this study. Three nematodes were detected as Ascaris sp., Oesophagostomum sp. and Strongyloides sp. The prevalence in Surabaya Zoo was Ascaris sp. (76.92%), Strongyloides sp. (33.33%) and mix infections of Ascaris sp. and Strongyloides sp. (33.33%). Meanwhile, the prevalence in Prigen Safari Park II was Ascaris sp. (100%), Oesophagostomum sp. (45.45%), Strongyloides sp. (27.27%), mix infections of Ascaris sp. and Oesophagostomum sp. (18.18%) and the mix infections of Ascaris sp., Oesophagostomum sp. and Strongyloides sp. (27.27%). These three species of gastrointestinal nematodes could infect easily babirusa at all ages if there was no adequate sanitation and also suitable humidity and temperature of these ex-situ conservation provide the development of these gastrointestinal nematodes.
