Oldest parasite

If studies are accepted, the oldest parasite found in the photograph would be the oldest parasite.

The fossil of the image becomes a precious jewel for the museum. According to studies being conducted at the University of Bonn, it is a being of the family of current parasites. Parasites that cause diseases of some birds, horses and crocodiles have been specially analyzed and have concluded that they are very similar to the photo.

Researchers have taken the greatest surprise when analyzing the age of the fossil. At least 500 million years have passed since this parasite contaminated the first animal. If research is accepted, it would be the oldest parasite found in ruin.
