Whose animals aren’t integral to the survival of fleas. So, in order to travel from the ground to the host animal, fleas are developed ability to jump massive spaces. If we can actually jump about 50 times and tight. And with all that power, there comes in amazing amount of accuracy. Scientist of sit out to figure out how they do this.

Fleas are actually a very narrow, biting insect. His long body has a muscle that goes all the way down the center of it. This muscle, when tenses up is a powerhouse that holds an immense amount of power. Like a coiled spring, he just waits to fire off to push the animal or insect through the air And onto the host animal. But all this power ejected through two large back legs would not guarantee that the insect could aim itself accurately enough to actually land on its host animal. 

To do that, the flea must ensure that the same amount of power is in both legs. The way that nature has device for this to happen is that these two legs are actually gear together. There is a gearing system naturally found in the legs of the flea that force the energy through both legs with equal amount of power. Well, the flea is not perfectly accurate. Its accuracy is greatly enhanced by this. Your Broken Arrow exterminator can help.
