The Australian paralysis tick is a typically unpleasant antipodean arachnid. Paralysis ticks spend much of their time perched on leaves with their legs outstretched waiting for something or someone to brush past at which point they grab on. As with other ticks when a suitable host is encountered they will burrow head-first into the skin and start feeding on blood until they look fit to burst see photo.
Unlike other ticks this one secretes a neurotoxin that is capable of causing death by paralysis which progresses to the lungs causing respiratory failure. Up until there were 20 recorded fatalities from tick paralysis in Australia. In addition to the toxin the paralysis tick often provokes an allergic reaction; this in itself can be life-threatening to some.
The guinea worm infects its host humans or dogs when they drink water that is contaminated with water fleas containing the worms larvae. It will live here in the body cavity for around 3 months where it mates with other guinea worms. After around a year the female guinea worms will have grown to over 50cm 18ins in length and are ready for the last stage of their journey. From the abdomen the worm makes its way down through the pelvis and along the bones of the leg towards the foot.
At some point they will reach the skin where the worm emerges from a blister to release hundreds of thousands of larvae when it encounters water. This stage is equally painful and associated with complications including severe allergic reaction. There is also a risk of secondary infections if the worm dies en route. Back in there were an estimated 3. Last year only 22 were recorded. Unfortunately, it has been accidentally spread to sub-Saharan Africa by human travel.
Basically these tiny bundles of itchy hate will thrive anywhere warm where there is poverty and lack of hygiene. In areas where chigoe fleas are endemic the infection rate can be up to half the population. As with many of the creatures on this list it is the female that is responsible for the parasites unsavoury reputation. She will burrow head first into the skin leaving only a small part of the rear end protruding.
This is for breathing, excretion and mating.
