If you have experience identifying parasites with fecal flotation, please let me know what you think these are. They are from an African Fattailed Gecko that is eating and defecating well, with normal, solid feces.
These are two that I'm 99% sure are oxyurid (pinworm) eggs.
Not sure about this one, but possibly a tapeworm egg.
Don't know what this one is, either, but I'm inclined to guess some sort of plant material. I saw a few different 'versions' of this all with different numbers of 'sides'. This one has 10, but there were some with 3,4, and 6 also.
Not sure about this one.
I was thinking this was a pinworm, but I have not been able to find a picture of reptile pinworms, only equine, which were white in the images. Is it a worm or a cricket or mealworm part?
Any help you can provide will be very appreciated.
