"Roo" Tick

This is a common parasite in the Southwest of Western Australia. While not normally harmful, if left embedded in the body, or removed incorrectly can result in nasty infections or paralysis.

  • Yes, the best tick may win, but not with my partner!  ....must not have been the best tick because he seems to be fully recovered.  The only thing to worry about now is a relapse.  He is 62 years old and can still climb these hills and rock outcrops faster than my 41 year old carcass. :)

  • May the best tick win?

  • Hi Scott,

    I didn't know it was a competition :)

    I hope your friend gets well soon.

  • thanks for sharing guys..

  • whoah...

  • This is the "Deer Tick", a common parasite in Wisconsin, USA.

    My partner in surveying recently got "bit" by Lyme Disease.  I wish him the best.

    Australia is looking less wild once again. 

  • that looks like a nasty customer for sure
