Fleas are small insects just about the same size as flies, only difference is they do not have wings. Fleas are known jumpers. Though, just like flies, these creatures feed on the blood of their hosts which are usually mammals or other warm blooded animals that have thick furs or hair. Fleas have flattened bodies due to their exoskeletons which allows them to move on their hosts without being seen. Though they do not possess wings and the ability to fly, they have strong mouth parts that is used for piercing the skin of their hosts and their legs also enable them to jump heights up to 50 times and more of their body length. Fleas lay eggs in batches from a dozen up to several batches. An adult male flea focuses on finding a female mate in order to reproduce, and usually the female fleas are the ones that feed off from the hosts because of their need for protein in order for them to lay eggs. As parasites, fleas carry bacterial and rickettsial diseases for humans which makes creatures like this toxic and very much parasitic even to large species such as humans.
