Caption

Tick mouthparts. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the mouthparts of a tick (superfamily Ixodoidea) showing the rostrum (centre). Ticks are blood-sucking arachnids. The tooth-like chelicerae are pointed appendages that are used to puncture the skin of an animal to allow the tick to feed on its blood. Magnification unknown.
