On the other hand, double infection was found in 114 (24\%) sheep, 51 (25\%) goats, 27 (20\%) cattle and 66 (34.7\%) camels. Adult ticks were identified as Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, R. bursa, R. turanicus and Haemaphysalis parva on sheep, Hyalomma anatolicum excavatum and Haemaphysalis sulcata on goats, Hyalomma lusitanicum on cattle and Hyalomma dromedarii, H. impeltatum, H. marginitum and H. a. anatolicum on camels. Babesia ovis and/or Theileria ovis were recorded in ticks gut and/or salivary glands in R. appendiculatus (20.\%), R. bursa (16.7\%), R. turanicus (10\%), Haemaphysalis parva (10\%), H. a. excavaium (30.\%), H. dromedarii (18\%), and H. a. anatolicum (6.7\%).
