Best Answer

The ones in British Columbia, Canada look like a large flea. They can be dark to light gray in color. They will attach themselves to animals or people and once drawing blood will bloat, and that's when they double or triple in size. It's important that anyone hiking, biking in mountainous areas brush their hair (even have their friend check through their hair) wear a hat/cap; long sleeves, pants and check over your body once you have returned from your outing. I always check our dogs too. If your dog or yourself comes into contact with a tick and it is not removed then Lime Disease can often occur. Ticks on dogs are usually around the muzzle area, but also can be attached around the ear area.
There are several types of tics,seed tics, blood tics that like to attach to dogs or even people. A seed tic looks like a very small dark colored seed and a blood tic, brown in color burries it's head and sucks the blood, getting fatter and fatter. They generaly like dark, moist areas of the body, behind the ear, in the ear, arm pit or groin area fo example.
