        Deadly Parasites

        In this interactive, explore the various steps involved in the cycle of a deadly parasite: Sporozoites invade the victim's liver and become Merozoites; Merozoites burrow into red blood cells then form and divide into thousands; these Merozoites cause disease; the parasites then insure that they will survive and shared with animals and humans during a mosquito's next "blood meal".
