Ectoparasites are parasites that consume the host organism's outer surface. Lice on people and ticks on dogs are two of the most well-known examples of this group. Ectoparasitic copepods infest a lot of marine species. Cuscuta, a parasitic plant that frequently grows on hedge plants, has evolved without leaves and without chlorophyll. It feeds on the host plant it parasitizes for nourishment.
