Under a high magnification, this photomicrograph depicts both, an egg from the human whipworm on the left, Trichuris trichiura, the causal agent of trichuriasis, and the dog whipworm, T. vulpis. Morphologically, T. vulpis ova resemble those of T. trichiura, but as is clearly visible here, are nearly twice their size.
