Many people have heard of Tony Goldberg - not for his extensive research on emerging pathogens of nonhuman primates or his study of the Kibale red colobus monkey in Uganda. He's best known for his nose, specifically his right nostril, which recently went viral.
After coming home from a trip to Uganda, Goldberg discovered a tick up his nose. While this had happened to him twice before, the particular type of tick could not be found in any database. Working with a collaborator who specialized in chimp behaviors they concluded ticks hold up in the noses of chimps - an area where they are safe from the excessive grooming habits of the primates.
