Ixodes ricinus, the castor bean tick

Found this guy on the floor after washing my dog. She must have picked it up during one her walks in the forest. Took some quick pictures using a cut up plastic milk jug as a quick-fix lightbox... You can still see some dried crust and dog hair stuck to its face...GROSS!
