Hi my name is Bosco and I’m a yellow Labrador. This bug was found feeding on my lower groin area. I acquired this bug in the Coastal Redwoods, late November, sunny day, in the San Francisco Bay Area. The area where the bug latched on is quite red and irritated. This one is quite unlike other bugs that like me. Can you please help me ID this insect?

Hi Bosco,
You had a blood engorged Tick that looks like it had a very good meal at your expense.
