Ralph, we get paralysis ticks here on the east coast. Their paralysing agent can kill small dogs, cats, babies etc but on an adult they just make you go numb. When I was in school I used to walk through half a kilometre or so of scrub to get to the bus stop in morning and would fairly regularly pull ticks at school, particularly in the summer. Every now and then I’d get a tick off and it’d still be alive, so I’d drop it on an unsuspecting friend. Ahh, the innocence of an infectious disease spreading youth 😆
