Laugh out loud take na picture of my butt I will try well you've got something to laugh about today this is as good as it gets
Expert:  Pedrovet70 replied 6 months ago.
Friend, I am sorry all I see is a brown spot it is to blurry. But, listen, if it is a tick you should be able to lift it and hold the body then grab the mouth as close to the skin and pull it off. Another option (not the best option) is to take a cotton and saturate it with alcohol, then leave the cotton on top of the tick to see if she releases. Last, if all else fail then go to your nearest ER doc, they should be able to pull it off in 1 second. Please reply if you have additional questions.
