I didn't know ticks had a taste for snake blood. Thought they only fancied warm blood.
Such potential!

A carpet python found in a Gold Coast pool with more than 500 ticks attached to its body was trying to drown them, a snake catcher says

Speciesist! :x
The Ixodidae contains over 700 species of hard ticks with a scutum or hard shield, which the Argasidae lack. The Argasidae contains about 200 species […]

Even dinosaurs had them:
The tick Deinocroton draculi has been found with dinosaur feathers preserved in Cretaceous Burmese amber from 99 million years ago.
"Deinocroton draculi" = Dracula's terrible tick! :mrgreen:

Weren't dinosaurs determined to be warm blooded?

I see from the link that the dinosaur tick was a half centimeter long.

What a disappointment. You'd figure something as big as a dinosaur would have ticks the size of small dogs at least. :BigGrin3:
