this is single celled parasitic animal,i.e,a protozoa,that infects predominantly humans and other primates . Diverse mammals such as dogs and cats can become infected but usually do not shed cysts(the environmental survival from of the organism)
With their feces,thus do not contribute significantly to TRANSMISSINON the active (trophozoite) stage exists only in the host and in fresh feces ; cysts survive outside the host in water and soils and on foods,especiallly under moist conditions on the latter.
When swallowed they cause infections by excysting (to the trophozoite stage) in the digestive tract.
