This is part 10 in the ongoing House Guest photographic series here in San Clemente Ecuador.
(Jennifer Freitas Deiley, beware!)
Our first guest of the day is a tick found on Sadie the dog:
The mouth of this tick is shaped like a cone for superior suction!
This tick could barely move it’s body was so full of blood.
It’s legs barely cleared it’s belly to ever so gently touch the ground.
Now a picture with a point of reference for scale: A pen tip.
Click on this picture and you will see the comb like features of it’s antennae.
ANOTHER crab in the house. Man, these guys are good at getting in here!
A big frog in the water cistern:
Figuring it out… 1 pet at a time.
