Each flea is different and requires a unique approach when it comes to care. As such, for all you new flea owners, remember to check this list for essential information on how to care for your chosen flea.

1. Water

Panda Flea gets everything they need from the highly nutritious (but absolutely disgusting) stalks of earwax bamboo in Gnasher's lugholes. So you don't need to provide extra water, but it might be nice for them to rinse their mouth out every now and again.

2. Food

Panda flea is the only species of flea to live solely on earwax bamboo (which is not a surprise). This unusual food source takes a lot of chewing so it can tire the Panda flea out, meaning they do a lot of sleeping in between meals.

3. Other Diet

You can try and introduce other foods to Panda Flea, but don't be surprised if they just stick to what they know. After all, why would you eat egg sandwiches or fruit salads when you have long sticks of dog earwax to guzzle on?

4. Litter tray

Not much is known about the Panda flea's toilet habits as they are very secretive animals and rarely seen in the wild. We assume they go to the loo in a specially-dug hole, but to be honest we have no idea.

5. Socialising

Panda fleas generally keep themselves to themselves, and are perfectly happy just eating and sleeping. Their best friend is Super Flea, but even they don't see the mysterious Panda Flea very often.

6. Grooming

Despite their gross diet, Panda Flea is surprisingly neat and tidy. Panda flea rarely leaves waxy paw or footprints, which helps them go unnoticed in the dense earwax forests of Gnasher's ears.

7. Well-being

Panda fleas are best left alone, and they like it when their privacy is respected. But over time you can build trust with them, and they are naturally very friendly fleas. Just take things slow and offer them some food, and one day they might pop out and say hello.

8. Exercise

Panda fleas don't need to be taken out for walks, and in fact they'd hide from you if you tried to make them. Instead, they get all the exercise they need from chewing on the thick, rubbery stalks of earwax bamboo that grows in Gnasher's ears. Exhausting!
