Cryptosporidiosis (crypto), a disease affecting both animals and humans, is caused by the organism Cryptosporidium. This is not a bacteria or virus but a group of parasitic protozoans (single-celled organisms that live off other organisms). There are several species of Cryptosporidium, most of which infect only specific species of animals.
