Dinosaurs Had a Bloodsucking Enemy

This week, scientists revealed a sample of amber containing an extinct tick that fed on dinosaurs. Unfortunately, we can’t take a blood sample from it and make Jurassic Park a reality, but it can still tell us a lot about how dinosaurs (and their parasites) lived.

We’re conducting a survey of our viewers! If you have time, please give us feedback: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SciShowSurvey2017
