Considering the size of the normal louse and the size of the giant louse (200 000 times bigger), and estimating that a external parasite must be much, much smaller than it's host, one wonders what matter of abnormally colossal, yet unknown beasts this insect sucks the blood of. If the proportionality is still valid, these beasts should be easily 500 times as large as a dragon.
