Yesterday morning, I was having one of “those” conversations at the dog park. You know, those conservation where a stranger asks what you study, and you tell them, and they get super grossed out, and you insist that, “No, really, parasites are cute,” and they still don’t believe you, so you use your phone to Google a photo of the World’s Cutest Parasite to prove it to them, and they totally agree that said parasite is pretty stinkin’ cute. I’m not going to tell you which parasite I Googled…yet. First, I want to hear your nominations for the World’s Cutest Parasite. You can send me your nominations on Twitter (@dinoverm #worldscutestparasite) or via email (dinoverm @ gmail.com). I’ll share your nominations next week!
