Ticks on Lizards

I came across this image today:

Do Ticks Feed on Lizards?

I found this curious. After a little research I found that Lizards have iron rich blood. They also consume oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. Ticks are attracted to carbon dioxide.

My comment:

“Very interesting to see a lizard with ticks on it. Lizards eat insects. I wonder what type of ticks those are. This is indeed curios to me, as a pest control guy. And I would have thought that the cold blooded creatures wouldn’t be as pleasing as a warm meal. But I guess a lizard still has iron rich blood. Thanks for sharing. I’ve leaned something new today.”
