From the Vertebrate Bowels of the Earth
Kirsten Jensen, curator
It's a subject few people want to think about: more than 5,000 species of tapeworms live in the intestines of their vertebrate hosts. These flatworms are far from simple, and particularly fascinating are those that parasitize sharks and rays. Journey into the underbelly world of tapeworms with assistant curator Kirsten Jensen, who will introduce you to the characteristics, diversity and peculiar life history of tapeworms.
