Wild animals are commonly parasitized by a wide range of helminths.  The four major types of helminths are “roundworms” (nematodes), “thorny-headed worms” (acanthocephalans), “flukes” (trematodes), and “tapeworms” (cestodes).  Here we describe how helminths are collected from a vertebrate animal and how they are preserved and taxonomically identified.
