Highest Jumping Animals : Flea


It is usually claimed that the best jumper on the planet is the Flea. They are lengthiest as well as highest possible jumper among pets as compared to body size.

Fleas can leap 220 times their very own body length and 150 times their own body elevation. If we were to scale up a flea to our size it would resemble us leaping virtually 400m in distance whilst jumping over a 250m high structure!

The ability of a flea to launch itself into the body of a host pet is exactly what makes it such a reliable parasite. Fleas own their feet into the ground, clutching it with spinal columns, and then suddenly release this ‘coiled springtime’ to catapult into the air.
