      THE STATISTICS OF PARASITES ARE FASCINATING! Parasites are known to do something called “aggregation”, where some animals have a lot of parasites and some animals have no parasites. Scientists have had to develop special statistics to understand this and to make sure we can treat the animals with a lot of parasites first. 🙂
