Ixodes Scapularis Ochros – Yellow haired parasitic genetically engineered tick, or yellow bloodsucker as its commonly known. Thru the marvels of science and genetic gene splicing this creature parasitically lives off its host, embedding its eight fangs into the flesh while its saw like underbelly works its way abrasively down thru the skins layers. Once embedded these animals are almost impossible to get off. They are covered with what would appear to be yellow hair, however much like the fine hairs on several cacti these are in fact quills and cause a nasty infection should they break off in the skin.
For now this breed of tick remains captive and for study. One can only hope that like most genetic experiments that these little monsters don’t make their way into the outside world.
