    MICROBIOLOGY
    Direct MODERATE NUMBER OF MOTILE FLAGELLATES SEEN -- there are some swimming microorganisms (not good or bad)
    VERY SCANTY NEMATODE OVA SEEN -- there were a few worm eggs
    Cryptosporidium Negative -- no cryptosporidium (good!)
    Concentrate NUMEROUS AS ABOVE plus + YEASTS -- another test revealed the same things listed above, plus some yeasts (yeasts are normal in the digestive tract).

    --> depending on what kind of worm (nematode) eggs were in there, it could either indicate a minor infection or it could be that the crestie ate some dirt with worm eggs in it, but the worm eggs don't belong to an infective species.

    Unless the animal is acting sick, these results are probably not cause for concern.
    3.3.0 Correlophus ciliatus (crested geckos)
