Ornithodorus moubata - a somewhat nasty little piece of work; a tick (?) that is found in house walls and dry sandy areas in the Northern parts of Southern Africa. Early explorers in the Richtersveld would find their bodies covered with them after lying down in the shade of a bush or tree for a few minutes - having dropped off the domestic animals of the local inhabitants, the Tampans would bury themselves in the sand and wait for an unsuspecting new host to arrive (ugh!).

:) New guess :
