Engorged Dog (or Wood) Tick

How is that for gross?

Pulled off of my dog.

I learned that they do not have eyes.

It is my most disgusting, yet one of my most viewed images on Flickr

I see this was mislabeled as a deer tick for the first 2.5 years it was posted.

Corrected 12/14/09. If you look in my ticks set, you can see an engorged deer tick and if you look close, you can see the differences.
