Arthropod Parasites

Arthropods form a huge assemblage of small fluid-filled cavity within the body of most multicellular animals with jointed limbs. They exhibit segmentation of their bodies which is often masked in adults because of their 10-25 body segments which are combined into 2-3 functional groups called tagmata. They exhibit varying degrees of cephalization, sensory receptors and feeding structures in the head region.

 Arthropods possess a rigid cuticle shape exoskeleton consisting mainly of proteins and chitin. The exoskeleton is usually hard and insoluble which is indigestible and impregnated with calcium salts. The exoskeleton provides physical and physiological protection .Skeletal plates are joined by flexible articular membranes and the joints can be called as hinges or pivots made from chondyles and sockets.
