completion of the life cycle of sarcocystis zuoi, a parasite from norway rat, rattus norvegicus.abstract transmission experiments were performed to elucidate the life cycle of sarcocystis zuoi found in norway rats (rattus norvegicus) from china. two king rat snakes (elaphe carinata) fed sarcocysts from the muscles of 4 naturally infected norway rats shed sporocyts measuring 10.8 ± 0.7 × 8.0 ± 0.7 μm with a prepatent period of 8 to 9 days. sporocyts from the intestine of 2 experimentally infected king rat snakes were given to the laboratory sd rats (rattus norvegicus) and km mice (mus mus ...201122150019
