Hypobiosis is a state where the infective larvae of some roundworms (already ingested with pasture by a sheep or goat) can stop their development inside the host. They wait in the L4 larval stage, and then mature and start reproducing once external environmental conditions are suitable for their eggs (which will pass in dung onto the pasture) to develop to larvae.
