Any of various parasitic flatworms of the class Cestoda. They lack digestive and sense organs, can reach 15 m/50 ft in length, and attach themselves to the host's intestines by means of hooks and suckers.

The larvae of tapeworms usually reach humans in imperfectly cooked meat or fish, causing anemia and intestinal disorders. tape-worm
