Tristan Cull-Tapeworm

The adult Dipylidium caninum lives in the small intestine of the dog or cat. It is hooked onto the intestinal wall by a structure called a rostellum which is sort of like a hat with hooks on it. The tapeworm also has six rows of teeth to grab on with. Most people are confused about the size of a tapeworm because they only see its segments which are small; the entire tapeworm is usually 6 inches or more.poster yourself

Head (or "scolex") of Diplylidium. The rostellum is the "hat." The round structures are suckers.
