This study was conducted to know the parasitic fauna of the livestock in Zanaskar region of Kargil district of Ladakh, keeping in veiw sex of the animal species. 35 number of samples (from cattle, yak, zomo, ass, donkey) were examined, out of which 11 (31.42 %) samples were found positive. Strongyle worm eggs, eimerian oocysts and Balantidium coli were found in 8.57%, 14.28% and 11.42% samples respectively. Out of 35 samples, 19 were collected from males (cattle, yak, zomo, ass, donkey) and 16 were collected from females. Out of 19 samples, 8 (42.10%) were found positive and out of 16 samples, 3(18.75%) were found positive. Thus higher infection was found in males as compared to females. Strongyle worm eggs and oocysts (10.52% and 42.10%) were found higher in males as compared to females (6.25% each), while B.coli infection was found higher in females (12.50%) compared to males (10.52%). Thus males showed higher infection as compared to females in all the species
