Fleas are wingless insects, 1/16 to 1/8-inch (1.5 to 3.3 mm) long, that are agile, usually dark coloured (for example, the reddish-brown of the cat flea), with tube-like mouth parts adapted to feeding on the blood of their hosts.
Their legs are long, the hind pair well adapted for jumping; a flea can jump vertically up to 7 in (18 cm) and horizontally up to 13 in (33 cm) making the flea one of the best jumpers of all known animals (relative to body size), second only to the frog hopper.
If humans had the jumping power of a flea, a 1.8-m (6-ft) person could make a jump 90m (295 ft) long and 49m (160 ft) high.
Their bodies are laterally compressed, permitting easy movement through the hairs or feathers on the host’s body (or in the case of humans, under clothing). The flea body is hard, polished, and covered with many hairs and short spines directed backward, which also assist its movements on the host.
