Abstract

A vise-like apparatus consisting of movable plates with “teeth”, which can be clamped to a table top, has been found to be of value as an aid in securing the heads of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) for examination for meningeal worms (Pneumostrongylus tenuis). This apparatus also has been valuable as an adjunct to necropsy procedures when studying various types of cranial injuries, cerebral abscesses, and for examining the turbinates for nasal bots (Cephenemyia phobifera).
