+ - Researcher allows sand flea to grow inside her to study it->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "Marlene Thielecke came to Madagascar to study the sand flea, an insect that spends part of its life cycle burrowed into the human
foot--but she wound up getting more intimate with the critter than she cared for. Months into her project, Thieleckewas bitten by a flea herself. She decided to make the best of it, by taking regular photographs and videos and keeping track of her observations. “I thought it might be interesting” to watch what happened, she says. As it turns out, her experience may help resolve an question
entomologists have debated foor decades: Where, exactly, does the sand flea have sex?"
