So tonight I am spinning through the channels and come across a show on Animal Planet called Monsters inside me http://animal.discovery.com/tv/monsters-inside-me/ OMG, oops a little valley girl slipped out! This is just freaky some of the parasites and bugs you can pick up at home and abroad. So this guy is hiking in Argentina and is bitten by a Sand Fly and is infected with Leishmaniasis.
Check this out! http://animal.discovery.com/videos/monsters-inside-me-the-leishmaniasis-parasite.html
So hey, you may want to carry some bug spray with you or put it on before you head out if plan on doing any hiking abroad.
