Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Rabbit ear mite (Psoroptes cuniculi). Psoroptes cuniculi mites are non-burrowing, and chew/pierce the skin in the ear canal of rabbits causing psoroptic mange. Often a secondary bacteria infection develops, which can extend to the middle and inner ear causing torticollis. In addition, with a severe infestation, the mites may extend to the head, neck, and other parts of the body. These mites cause intense itching and often rabbits will scratch and shake their heads, which can lead to further infection. Their life span is approximately 21 days. Magnification: x35 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
