Yeah, though a few years old than BOI! People have always compared Edmund's art and mine, we just have some of the same tastes :)

All living things use other living things as food, though. As opportunistic omnivores, we just plain kill and eat plants and animals by the billions! Parasites, however, mostly evolved to feed over a long period without killing, and except for the guinea worm or extreme infestations of some of the others, most parasites don't cause any pain or shorten your lifespan, either. They have a peaceful equilibrium with their food sources! :)

I know and agree, but they are still evil. And i have a phobia of them. (probably why i'm saying that XD)

I think the hookworm and the roundworm are my two favorites out of these, but they're all disturbingly delightful!

What I love most is the accuracy. Having studied these under microscopes in Parasitology lab and having to draw them up in my notebook and know them well enough to be able to identify them for a microscope-based practical lab exam... well, let's just say you did awesome here from that standpoint. :D

I wish my lab notebook weren't in storage. :\

The only one that gave me trouble was pinworm, since they're kinda nondescript. I had to embellish a bit, and add the spelunking hat. At least I didn't keep the "dirt" I originally drew on it >>

What a lovely bunch. I'd hate to be the lucky fellow who gets to, ahem, "host" their family reunion.
