I never knew what a deer tick looked like until last year, when little one had one on her. In case you need a description--the tick body is black and the size and shape of a sesame seed. As you can see from the picture, there are eight legs. In case you'd like information on how to remove deer ticks, go here.
This may be gross to some of you, but I had to take this picture of the ticks so you could see the difference in size--one is kind of engorged with blood, the other had no such luck. The lighting was a little off--the little tick is actually black.
