Very interesting! I have not seen fold-out hooks like this before now.

Do you know what kind of tick this is?

And how did you prepare it?

Thanks a lot!
Exactly I do not know. But it is Exodida, Parasitiformes. Standard tick which preferes humans )
I found it on my leg after walking in the forest. Put it at home in the fridge and after that begin to take photos. No any special preparations.

Positively horrific!
The trouble with quick and dirty is that the dirty remains after the quick is gone.
