Thread: On ev'ry Tick there is a tick upon his back to bite 'em

    On ev'ry Tick there is a tick upon his back to bite 'em

    On ev'ry tick there is a tick upon his back to bite 'em
    And on that tick a littler tick
    and so Ad Infinitumů.

    This is the third double tick I have had off my little springers this year! Two of them during a week walking on Arran at the beginning of June and these yesterday. I wonder if they were already a pair when she picked them up or they found her independently and joined up after?

    Funnily enough, one (or two) of these fell off a buck a shot last week. First i've seen also. Cant upload the pick tho. Was the same as yours with the second looking like it had just latched on.

    It is true. Every living thing is host to parasites, even parasites.
