Leeches

Leeches make swimming in murky water absolutely terrifying. These long, slender, black slug-like creatures have been known to latch on to unsuspecting victims and suck their blood until painfully removed. Their teeth leave an impression, that’s for sure.

Ticks

Ticks are positively disgusting. They reside on plants until a person or animal brushes past said plant, which results in the tick being transferred to the new host. They drink your blood until you realize they are inside of you. Most ticks end up leaving behind Rocky Mountain Spotter Fever or Lyme Disease.
