This is the official tumblarg of BOGLEECH, one of the most terrifying websites ever invented by the internet. You can look at its other junk above!

BACK. THE FUCK. UP.

I’ve been an arthropod and parasite freak all my life.

I amass as much trivial information about them as possible on a daily basis.

I am especially fascinated by ticks, simultaneously my only phobia.

And I only find out JUST NOW that many ticks have EYES? Every book I ever owned made a point of saying they were completely eyeless, and I just never questioned it.

Not only do they have eyes, they have adorable eyes in the most whimsical place.

Even biologists seem to refer to the tick’s mouthparts as a “head,” so again, I never questioned this, and my mind always oriented on that as their “head” area even though I knew they were mites, which makes their main body segment a fusion of head and body.

I just cannot fucking believe this escaped me. Imagine if you went through life not noticing that dogs had legs or birds had beaks. That’s what I’m feeling right now.


An animal I thought I knew all too well just transformed into an utterly different, marvelously absurd new monster.

….And every single cartoon tick I thought was embellishing the addition of eyes was correct all along. I even have a plush tick with eyes in exactly the correct place.

MY LIFE IS A LIE

EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT

TICKS ARE TINY KABUTOS
