Through the Microscope

Suzy took a class in parasitology last semester (I'm sure the study of my brother occupied an entire unit of the class), and took these photos through her microscope. Here they are, in no particular order:

1) ctenocephalides = cat and dog flea

2) strongyles = parasitic worm of horses

3) dermacentor = tick

4) sheep ked (saying, "What? What?" in a Brooklyn accent). Thanks, Suzy.

this brings back my days as a vet assistant, looking at parasites under the microscope always made me inexplicably itchy for hours. *runs off to find calamine lotion, or something*
