Summer is almost here and people tend to spend more time outdoors. That is very pleasant and most of us enjoy the sun and warm weather. But there may also be some dangerous creatures, especially in some areas. What are the most common dangerous, venomous or parasite animals in your area? In my area, there are thankfully only a few of them compared to the rest of the world. It is not uncommon to meet a bear in the woods and they sometimes visit villages to eat out of garbage bins. You can meet a boar quite often, too. We only have one type of venomous snake living in the mountains that could kill a young child or an adult with weak immune system or heart disease. But that doesn't happen very often. The most common parasite in my area (with the highest % of contamination in the country) is a tick https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tick They are very common and spread encephalitis and borreliosis. Two people I know got borreliosis from them. I only got a tick once in my life as far as I know but our cat and dog get many of them each year from running in tall grass. Recently a person I know got one inside his ear. It hurt and his lymphatic node swell and he didn't know what's going on. Than someone looked inside his ear with a flashlight and there was a big tick. They were able to remove it and the swelling disappeared but the person still has to pay attention to symptoms in case it was contaminated. What about your area?
