Abstract

An experiment involving nine Maned-wolf(Chrysocyon brachyurus), from the Triangulo Mineiro area,Minas Gerais, Brazil, was carried out to check the occurrence of hookworm eggs and their adult forms. Eggs of the referred helminths were identified in 77.77% of the studied animals. Among the adult forms founded in the small intestine, two species were identified: Uncinaria stenocephala (Railliet, 1884) and Ancylostoma caninum (Ercolani, 1859). The authors report of the first occurrence in the U. stenocephala and C.brachyurus Brazil.
