SNOT FLEA – Itchus mucus

Gnasher's Fleas – Snot Flea

Scientists and animal husbandry experts have all agreed that the Snot Flea – the itchus mucus – is the grossest flea ever found in the wild jungle of Gnasher’s coat, but for all their ick and ugh characteristics, they’re actually the most friendly flea of all. 

It’s understood that the Slime Flea prefers to set up camp close to Gnasher’s nose, which allows them to get in on all the snuffling action and does a great job making sure that super-sensitive nose glides and slides rather than getting snarled up.  

Now you’ve adopted this fantastic flea into your home, it’s best to keep a packet of handkerchiefs in reaching distance incase it jumps from its own bed and onto your face. They’re friendly, alright, but you definitely wouldn’t want them rubbing their slime into your pores. 

If your new Snot Flea wishes to relax after a tough day of jumping and being generally icky, why not check out our slime-related content on Your tiny new pal will find something to enjoy. 

Warning: do not leave near novelty shower gel or bath foam as it will more than likely blend into its new, fragrant surroundings.
