Brown Dog Tick (Nymph) - Rhipicephalus sanguineus I was surprised that we didn&#039;t have any photos of this species on JD because it is found worldwide...So, here it is.<br />
<br />
Brown dog ticks are easy to recognize because they are brown, lack ornamentation, and have a hexagonal basis capituli.   Adults grow to just over 3 mm in length.<br />
<br />
It is medically significant in that it can transmit many pathogens to dogs that induce diseases, such as tick typhus, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, and ehrlichiosis. <br />
