Well, arachnid technically. Is this blood-sucking piece of garbage an American Dog Tick?
I think it is. A female.That marking behind the head seems distinctive, and the brown dog tick has a much shorter mouth. I asked elsewhere online, but then I thought “Hey, I know a group of smart motherfuckers who hang out in the outdoors and have animals, I should ask them.”
I had to cut it in half with a spoon to kill it. You can’t pinch a tick to death. Hardy summabitches.
And that’s the story of why I posted a fucking tick picture on the blog. :)
