The CDC of Changping District in Beijing admitted that tick was found in Longzeyuan west community.

Ticks have existed in the area for years. They are parasitic arachnids attaching themselves to human skin, sucking blood and transmitting diseases. They can grow from the size of sesame seeds to as big as soybeans after being sated with blood, according to local witnesses.

Don't get ticked off about it, lady.

I'd rather be bitten by one than be married to her.

losing your loved one is very hard

looking at this tick, you can see that it did not stop until it is obscenely large, almost losing the natural defense mechanism of an exoskeleton, by virtue of its greed
(beast ex machina)

I think it looks cute.

Better than a child anyway. Nasty little creatures!

I cringed when I saw the image of the tick...totally gross.
Wondering what caused it...bad living conditions? bad personal hygiene?
