In the Trichina, a parasitic roundworm, the bodies of several animals, particularly the rat, are host for developing eggs. If the rat is eaten by a carnivorous animal, these excessively small young are liberated during the process of digestion and rapidly assume the adult condition in the alimentary canal, giving rise to young which pursue again the same course of development.
