THE FLYING FLEA – Itchus gymnasium
Fleas are very, very hard to spot – you’d need a magnifying glass to see their cheeky faces – but if you’re convinced you just spotted something leaping out of Gnasher’s fur only for it to vanish almost immediately, then you probably caught a glimpse of the Flying Flea.
Although they are a skin-dwelling flea, the Flying Flea actually spends 66% of its life in the upper reaches of Gnasher’s fur and just beyond. And it’s the only flea that can do the splits – if you had six legs, you’d understand how hard that is!
This bug moves by somersaulting, forward-rolling and tumbling. Now you’ve adopted the most agile of this gang, prepare for the Flying Flea to cartwheel… into your heart.
