Goleta, Santa Barbara County, California, USA June 19, 2006 Size: About a quarter inch
I found this tick on the upper-right of my waist. It must have just bitten me because it's head wasn't fully inserted into my skin. I've looked around, and it seems to either be an American Dog Tick, or a Pacific Coast Tick.
