|Hi Per, I have looked it up, and it is true, the ticks are counted as spiders. In southern Sweden, where I grew up, ticks were rare 20 years ago. I have never got a tick, although I spent a lot of time in the nature. Nowadays they are everywhere and this one is the largest I have seen. I thought it might be interesting for TN. Of course it is nicer to look at beautiful and cute animals, but nature is not always nice.
