It also answered me the question: why are all these smaller ticks I see doing on these giant engorged ticks?
I used to find soooo many double ticks that I was wondering, if ticks sucked blood from engorged ticks!¨
The idea was seriously disgusting...
My tomcat came initially with so many ticks, and it was freaky to find so many double ticks... It felt awful to think that ticks would suck their mates? In fact, it was a male in love!!!
How the heck can we know male ticks use the MOUTH to introduce sperm into the female?
It is also a bit yucky: does it mean if we get bitten by male ticks, that they are injecting us with some left-over sperm from their mouths?!!
