This worm was found living inside a live bunny. We removed it easily. It had bored into her with just a little bit that stuck out only when it moved.
She has a large sore between the size of a quarter and a nickel. The worm is screw like in appearance, about 15 mm in length and about 3-5 mm in width. The color is medium brown with darker brown in the screw area.
I am trying to identify this worm.
Sorry I don't know what this worm/larvae may be, but maybe someone else will recognize your description.
Have you thought about checking with your local vet? Since you found the worm in your rabbit, it may be something known in your region to attach itself to animals.
Let us know if you found out something specific.
