Animal of the Week: Flea (Insect)

Filed under: Uncategorized — smackamack @ 3:45 pm

200px-scanning_electron_micrograph_of_a_flea1I know that this is a rather odd choice for animal of the week…however, while I was in Scotland I learned a lot about fleas on a show.  

1. Did you know that fleas back legs are so long that they can jump 80 times their height?  If we were built like fleas we could jump so high that we could jump over the Eiffel Tower.

2. The males have 2 penises.

3. In flea circuses they used to glue the fleas to the floor or to toys so they didn’t runaway.  However, due to the glue on their feet it would burn and they would look like they were moving only because they were in pain and trying to jump away.

Ps. My mum would like me to correct this post…Fleas are not animals, but insects.
