Caption: Mouthparts of a tick buried in the skin of a 39 year old woman's thigh. Incorrect removal can result in the tick's mouthparts being left in the skin, which can lead to infection of the site. Ticks are parasitic arachnids. The females feed on the blood of mammals, birds and reptiles. Ticks are vectors for a number of animal and human diseases, including Lyme disease.
