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.

Hi Janelle,

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.

Kind regards,

Worms in X-rays
by: Angie

I'm sorry. I really don't think you'll be able to see any worms in x-rays. I realize you are feeling discouraged and hopeless over this.

Have you checked around in your area for a alternative doctor who deals in natural and holistic healing? They are often much more open to investigating unusual symptoms and conditions and may be able to offer you some support and solutions.

Skin Worms
by: Anonymous

About a year ago I suddenly broke out in sores on my face (very painful) it was originally thought to be Empitigo but after sebding in some samples it was not a virus nor bacteria! it took a few months to go deeper insider yet still noticeable! I just wanted to say I live in Simi Valley CA, I have had the "Black worm-like" thing infect my foot entering through a cut between my toes, it was disapated within 24hrs so I couldn't get any help. I also have photos and videos of all the parasites I am mentioning! Then I noticed a cacoon like thing inside my left nostril I found it by taking a photo , then I noticed a few days later on the same left nostril was a red glob of skin with white things comming out and that same "worm-like" thing on top it was partially translucent, now a year later I have photo's of my head and I am terrified of what I see, then the original parasite is still under my skin on my chin, no doctors will even look at my photos or videos and now my septum had devieated extreemly to the left and swells blocking any air in or out and that "worm-thing" has it's self partially in the hole to my tubintes on the opposite side and it swells as well blocking air on that side! I am photographing large worm-like things emerging and then submerging from my scalp! Even my dog won't come near me! I need help as one actually burrowed 4 pencil sized holes into my cheek I could barely phograph it but it looks like a large sperm-like worm-like thing and it moves very fast! I just wanted to get this out there cus I thought I was the only one ! I know I soun insaine but one ENT Doc did see the flesh colored one and assumed it was just a part of my ala! I must keep trying I don't want to die this way!P.S will a worm show up in an x-ray?
