Look at this eyeworm (Oxyspirura petrowi) move in this wild Northern bobwhite quail’s (Colinus virginianus) eye! This eyeworm is so large compared to the bobwhite’s small eye. In fact, if the size of this eyeworm in the quail eye is extrapolated to an infection in a human eye, the eyeworm’s size would be comparable to a toothpick! This female bobwhite had more than 30 eyeworms total in both eyes and in poor health condition. This level of eyeworm infection is considered a strong infection in our publication, Infection levels of the eyeworm Oxyspirura petrowi and caecal worm Aulonocephalus pennula in the northern bobwhite and scaled quail from the Rolling Plains of Texas www.researchgate.net/publication/308724739_Infection_levels_of_the_eyeworm_Oxyspirura_petrowi_and....

Every day the Wildlife Toxicology Laboratory works toward a solution for parasitic infection in bobwhite quail, so keep up to date on our expanding research by following our social media pages www.facebook.com/WTLbobwhite/, www.instagram.com/wtlbobwhite/ and our website wildlifetoxicologylab.org/.

Congratulations to Kendall Blanchard who recently received Texas Tech University’s Graduate School Outstanding Thesis Award in the Biology/Life Sciences category! Kendall graduated with a great deal of experience and honors during her time at the Wildlife Toxicilogy Lab (WTL), and she contributed greatly to our research efforts concerning parasitic infection in Northern bobwhite quail (Colinus virginianus) in the Rolling Plains Ecoregion of West Texas.

You can find her publications at www.researchgate.net/profile/Kendall_Blanchard/ and how we are expanding her work at www.researchgate.net/profile/Ronald_Kendall and wildlifetoxicologylab.org !
