Fleas can live for about 100 days.
Fleas do not fly. They jump from one place to another.
A pair of fleas can produce 400-500 offspring in their lifetime.
A flea can jump up to 8 inches high. That is 150 times its own height. If you could do this, you'd be able to leap over a tall skyscraper!
Fleas are parasites that feed on blood.
Fleas can live on any warm-blooded animal, but seem to prefer to live on humans, cats, dogs, opossums, rats and other rodents. They can also be found on shoes, pant legs, or blankets.
