my favorite protozoa..Giardia lamblia...morphologically that is..bunch of little smiling faces but dont be fooled by their cuteness..they can cause some serious damage..

Giardia - I've been amazed to see how pretty microcopic photos of deadly things can be - ebola, salmonella, etc. But THIS IS RIDICULOUS! These little bastards have smiley faces!

Giardiasis is the most frequently diagnosed intestinal parasitic disease in the United States and among travelers with chronic diarrhea. Signs and symptoms may vary and can last for 1 to 2 weeks or longer. In some cases, people infected with Giardia have no symptoms.

giardia   >>   This parasite is in our San Bernardino mountain streams and falls...don't drink the water without boiling first...

Giardiasis - Beaver Fever Giardiasis — popularly known as beaver fever — is a disease caused by the flagellate protozoan Giardia lamblia (also sometimes called Giardia intestinalis and Giardia duodenalis).

Giardia lamblia protozoa, SEM I picked some of these up on my second trip to India.  Not a big fan.

Anything that comes into contact with feces (poop) from infected humans or animals can become contaminated with the Giardia parasite. People become infected when they swallow the parasite.
