: This study shows that the community structure of parasites in the amphibian host, <i>Hoplobatrachus tigerinus</i> is less diverse, non-interactive, isolationist and depauperate. Many factors such as temperature, seasons, host age, sex, length, weight, food and feeding habits are very crucial in shaping the parasitic communities in a host. This study would also help the young researchers to analyze the parasitic community structure of other amphibians in a very classy mode.
