This is Ixodes daimmini, the deer tick that carries the
bacterium that causes Lyme disease. The tick can get the bacteria
from deer and at least 15 more kinds of wild animals. Then when it
bites another animal, like a human, it transmits the bacteria to
them. In spite of the impressive-looking barbed mouthpart (really
highly modified chelicerae), people usually don't feel the bite!
