I find parasites to be very fascinating, what parasites have you or your pets had?
I've had tapeworms, pinworms, and ticks over the course of my life.
Also random parasite videos:
I know right? I love parasites.
I enjoy taking fleas off my cat, but I hate it when they bite me lol
By the way what's the best way to get rid of fleas forever? I put the treatment on my cat (liquid one) like 2 weeks ago and he has more already...
My dog will eat the fat ticks I pull off of her. It's kind of disgusting.
Pic related. It's my fat dog being lazy af
I've had way more parasites than my pets because I keep going to the tropics for work. The list includes:
>bicho do pe
>many, many, many ticks
>an equally absurd number of leeches
And that's just the stuff that lives on you. Factor in mosquitoes, assassin bugs, the butterflies and sweat bees that tried to drink my eyeballs, and the one time I was stupid and didn't sleep under a net and got bit by a vampire bat on my big toe and then had a hilarious trip to a Brazilian hospital for emergency rabies shots, then you've got a whole lot of things trying to feed off me.
>all dat shit
I'm sorry, but I lol'd.
How long has it been since Vlad the leech died? Does anyone remember what I'm talking about? Some anon took care of a leech for about a year and documented it on /an/ in an attempt to get over their fear of them. It was neat.
OP here, I forgot to mention that I've also had leeches and chiggers before.
Damn, from what I'm reading you've been a five-star hotel for parasites. May I ask what you do for work?
I remember having an insect like this in my ear once, it was biting my skin, what parasite is this?
A tick. They bite into you and suck your blood. The more they drink, the bigger they get, pic related.
I've found 2 on my before, and one near my dog's eye once, we didn't get Lyme disease though.
Apparently if you pull them out, their fangs can come off and stay in your skin, so you have to be careful of that.
