ABSTRACT
The article reports on the fecal egg counts of gastrointestinal parasites of endangered primates endemic to the forest of Tana River, Kenya, to quantify the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites. The crested mangabey are predicted to have higher prevalence of parasites than the Tana River red colobus because they are terrestial omnivores.
