    Cryptosporidium spp. infection in captive exotic mammals was investigated using staining and molecular biological methods. A total of 323 faecal samples from 100 mammalian species (62 Artiodactyla, 33 Rodentia, 3 Perissodactyla and 2 Paenungultata) in four zoological gardens in the Czech Republic was examined. Only in a reticulated giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata) sample Cryptosporidium sp. infection was detected. The partial small subunit rRNA sequence obtained from the isolate was identical to sequences of Cryptosporidium muris in rock hyrax (Procavia capensis) and Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus). Neonatal BALB/c mice inoculated with 1×103 fresh oocysts of the C. muris giraffe isolate did not produce a detectable infection.
