Furtive Fauna: A Field Guide to the Creatures who Live on You
The author of the popular, offbeat book Flattened Fauna returns with a look at such fascinating fellows as the eyebrow mite and to tooth amoeba, not to mention the dreaded tropical chigoe, which can lay thousands of eggs in places you'd really rather not think about. This fully illustrated book gives a whole new meaning to the term "a perfect host".
