Our aim is to map distribution of both Reptile ticks (Bothrocolis spp), and exotic Snake Mite (Ophionyssus natricis). We intend to examine if any other pathogens exist within both groups of ecto parasites. Previously we have found Rickketsia honei in blue tongues and shingleback ticks in Tasmania and Western Australia.
