  1. order siphonaptera

    Order Siphonaptera is a taxonomic classification for small, wingless insects that are most commonly known as fleas. They are ectoparasites, meaning they live on the outside of their host and primarily feed on the blood of mammals and birds. They are known for their ability to jump great distances relative to their size, their laterally compressed bodies that enable them to move through their host's fur or feathers, and their specialized mouthparts adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood. These insects are generally associated with transmitting diseases such as plague and myxomatosis.
