Found this tick on the dog I am pet-sitting. The owner had walked her dog on the edge of a field while waiting for me, so I'm pretty sure that's where it came from. ID from here: http://bugguide.net/node/view/257043/bgpage

Description

Dead tick, found beneath a chess piece while playing playing chess with one of our local guides. (I think the tick is on a white square of the chessboard in the picture.)

Relatedly, I did not find any ticks on me through the whole Indonesia trip. How disappointing.
