PostSubject: Walkaround: Castor Bean Tick (3B Scientific)   Sun Aug 20, 2017 11:08 pm

hey all,

This is my first walk-around, and it's for the castor bean tick, Ixodes ricinus (Linnaeus, 1758) by 3B Scientific out of Germany.

This is an amazing figure and is VERY accurate, even down to the inverted U-shaped anal groove that defines genus (along with having long mouthparts, no eyes, and no festoons).

This is a European species. Members of the genus are vectors of Borrelia burgorferi (Lyme disease), Babesia spp. (babesiosis), and Anaplasma phagocytophila (human anaplasmosis].

My new favorite figure :)

3B products are made in Germany but their distributor is here in Georgia [where I lived at the time of the original pst]. The US National Tick Collection is in Statesboro, GA (coincidence? LOL).

Blaine, be careful that this tick won't feed on your blood. Putting that huge tick on your hand like that could be very Dangerous for you.

I should say it is a unknown figure to me but not... actually I am very familiar with it! Laughing
It is again amazing the diversity of creatures we can find replicated. The size is also impressive. Very Happy

I was referring to it in a subtle way but, as always, you are very observant. Very Happy
