12 Interesting Facts About Parasites

12 Interesting Facts About Parasites 

When you hear the word parasite do you think of a hideous creepy-crawly with too many eyes and legs, that feeds off another creature? You may be partially right, but did you know, for example, that not all parasites are bad? In fact, some parasites can be good for their host’s health. Read on to find out more about these little critters.

1. Parasites are the most common form of life on Earth, making up over 80% of all living things.

2. The earliest known human parasite is a lung fluke, and it was found in fossilised faeces in northern Chile dating from 5900 BC. 

3. Maggots are sometimes used in medicine to clean up infected tissue around wounds that aren’t healing well. They only eat dead skin and tissue so they get rid of the diseased part, and often save a limb or body part from being amputated.

4. You almost certainly have creatures living on your face. They’re called Demodex mites, and they feed on dead skin cells and oil from sebaceous glands. 

5. Found in the Amazon, the vampire fish, or Candiru, can swim up a urine stream into a human’s urethra, where it then feeds on blood. Only surgery can remove it as it lodges itself in position with a sharp spine. 

6. Like humans and other animals, fish suffer from parasites. but they have some help in the form of the Cleaner Wrasse – a small tropical fish that eats the parasites off the skin of bigger fish. 

7. Apes and monkeys spend hours grooming each other to remove parasites. Researchers believe that the behaviour is important for both hygiene and social bonding.  

8. One of the world’s deadliest parasites is the mosquito, but only certain species, and only female mosquitos of those species, can transmit malaria. 

9. Plants can be parasites too. Found in southeastern Asia, the Rafflesia plant lives inside tropical trees, and is the largest flowering plant in the world. It’s flowers look and smell like rotting flesh, and locals refer to it as ‘corpse flower’. 

10. Tapeworms live in your intestines, absorbing nutrients from partially digested food as it passes through your body. Infections are rare, but in human hosts tapeworms have been reported to grow up to 30 feet long.

11. Some scientists now believe that intestinal parasites could be good for us, activating our immune systems and preventing disorders caused by inflammation of the intestines. 

12. Once an ant has been sprinkled with its spores, the parasitic fungus Ophiocordyceps unilateralis or ‘Zombie Ant Fungus’ begins to infect the ant’s brain, directing it to climb to a higher position. Eventually, the parasite’s large stalk erupts through the back of the ant’s head and its spores burst from the tip, dispersing to the jungle floor and beginning the cycle over again with more ants.

The microscopic parasites mentioned above can all be seen clearly under a microscope.

Why Animals Have Wrinkles over Skin?

Wrinkled Animals
You can easily be find the examples of wrinkles in various animal species that grow loose, excess skin, when they are young.  Wrinkles are a trait associated with juvenile animals, most of the elephants, usually “African Elephants” have wrinkles which help to keep cool themselves. Elephants have less sweat glands. They cannot use them for regulating the temperature of their body. Because of it, they disperse heat in other ways, wrinkles on the skin of an elephant traps moisture in the hollows, which means that it takes longer to evaporate the moisture in an elephant’s skin, this helps to keep the elephant cooler for longer time. Elephants are not only the creased creatures on the earth that benefit from wrinkles, the most famously dogs known as the name of furrowed are also have Chines sharpei wrinkles. In 2008, the researchers of the University at Autonoma de Barcelona, discovered a genetic mutation in the purebred that gives them their wrinkled appearance increased production of a naturally occurring compound called hyaluronic acid. Granting to the research of American Kennel Club, sharpei wrinkles are limited to the head, neck, and withers in adult dogs the breed is more wrinkly overall as puppies. The naked mole rat also has wrinkley skin. its saggy skin helps to make them to move around easier, and able them to burrow underground easily. Bruce Patterson, curator at the Field Museum in Chicago, said  that "All burrowing rodents have loose skin because they live in confined tunnels and need to turn around, virtually inside their skins.” The slack skin of  naked mole rats is more noticeable, which look like funny, because they are totally hairless. They do have sparse hairs that allow them to sense their surroundings it is a great ability in that type of rats. Patterson also said that “Blind and nearly cold blooded, the African rodents stay safely underground, where the sun's warmth penetrates the shallow parts of their tunnels.” Naked mole rats are known for another reason, they live long, its lives has totally free from cancer, whereas mice and rats do not live long and have high rates of cancer. In 2013, the study says in journal nature report, in which the chemical properties that make naked mole rat skin stretchy may also play a role in keeping them free from cancer.

Islamabad is one of a best city of Pakistan. The tourist can visit this city every year. It is located at 33.43°N 73.04°E at the edge of the Pothohar Plateau at the foot of the Margalla Hills in Islamabad Capital Territory. Its elevation is 507meters (1,663 feet). To the east of the city lies Murree and Kotli Sattian.

The Hub Dam and Monsoon 2003

A picture of the dam in February 2011
Since 1995 i.e. first time after 8 years the Hub Dam was filled in 2003 due to great Monsoon rains in most of its catchment region i.e. western Sind and eastern Baluchistan from 6th to the end of July 2003. Before the start of Monsoon rains the level of water in the dam was 278 feet. By 13th July, 2003 the level reached 292 ft and after a strong spell in the region (during 16-19 July) it has touched level of 313 ft around 20th of July. As more water was continue to coming in the dam, the local authorities or the Dam officials issued warning for people of the nearby areas to take precautions in case of the Dam overflowing.

It is written in my diary of 2003 (most probably from the official news or newspaper report) that ‘Capacity of dam is 339 ft and due to the most intense rain spell (from 23rd July to 28th July) the water level reached dam’s capacity’. On 29th July, 2003 it was reported that dam has completely filled, reached near 340 ft and the excess water has started to overflow through the Hub River (Hub Naddi).


Earlier in the history the Dam overflowed in 1984, 1989, 1992, 1994 and 1995 (as information also given in above link).


Last time Hub Dam filled to capacity was in 2007 however the most recent ‘good time’ for Hub Dam was in Monsoon 2011 when though it wasn’t full but very good amount water came in the dam especially due to a strong spell in September that took the water level up to 327 ft. (Some detail included in information given in the above 2nd link).

Meteorites fall in Sindh Pakistan

Meteorite Shower in Tharparkar - Pakistan Around Eastern Sindh
Meteorites are naturally occurring small rocky or metallic body objects that originate in and travelling through space, and survive a fall to the ground through Earth's atmosphere. When the object enters the Earth's atmosphere at a speed of 20km/s (kilometer per second), aerodynamic heating generates a streak of light, from the glowing object and the trail of glowing particles that it leaves in its wake. This is called a meteor, or colloquially a "falling star" or "shooting star" is very bright meteors and they called as fireballs. More or less 15,000 tones of meteoroids, micro meteoroids and different types of space particles or dust enter Earth's atmosphere each year.

The question is about meteor shower in Sindh…? People from South Eastern Sindh ( Province of Pakistan ) have tell that a meteor has strike a town by the name of Diplo in the place of Tharparkar district of Sindh.

On 5th-May-2014 a meteor shower occurred in the Ladki village of Tharparkar district in Sindh during the night of 5-May. The meteor caused a small crater. No damage occurred in the region, on the other hand the meteor fell over a school building. The people of that place described the event as loud as thunderstorm or a bomb blast. The meteor weighed about few 100 grams. (Pakistan Weather Portal)

Eye witnesses of Meteorites Shower says : -
“In the present day I saw a meteor, it was very scary but till now there is no news on the TV channels or in other media. It had a weird sound and after a while we heard a blast”, said by Ishaque Nizamani, a citizen.
