Yup, there are animals on your face right now. And they poop only when they die


Each of us is inhabited by the microbiome, those bacteria that help us digest food. On our skin we can locate bacteria, viruses and also mites. These mites are called Demodex mites and they are brothers to arachnids, spiders.

Those mites are tiny, they feed on our dead skin cells and they never poop. Their poop just comes out when they die. How nice!
