DMNS Parasite Collection (Arctos)
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science Parasite Collection houses approximately 6,000 specimens or specimen lots of ectoparasites and endoparasites. Parasite specimens are linked to DMNS bird and mammal hosts, primarily collected since 2006, with a focus on the Rocky Mountain and Great Plains regions. The collection is largely fluid, with some specimens mounted on slides.
