Par­a­sites and dis­ease

World of Animals - - All About Reindeer -

A par­a­site known as the rein­deer abo­masal ne­ma­tode can be in­gested as they for­age in their sum­mer feed­ing grounds. These par­a­sites can cause weakness, dis­ease and even death. In Fin­land, warmer tem­per­a­tures have also in­creased mos­quito pop­u­la­tions and led to out­breaks of Se­taria tun­dra in herds.
