The Tick teaches about Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

We covered Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (Ricketsiae ricketsiae) in class today, and here is The Tick to help spread the knowledge. He has the classic sign of a non-blanching maculo-papular rash spreading inwards from the extremities. He also has the fever, myalgia and headache common to all Ricketsial diseases. Ironically Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is rarely found in the Rocky Mountains and is also spread by ticks.
