Cat flea

Cat flea. Colored Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of a cat flea Ctenocephalides felis, seen in side view. At upper left is the head, helmet- shaped to assist the flea to cut a path through the fur of its cat host. The body is also laterally flattened for this purpose. A pair of small rounded eyes (red) are visible, as are head antenna which can be withdrawn into grooves on the head. Comb-like spines on the head, called ctenidia, anchor the flea in the fur of its host. The mandibles are modified to pierce the skin and suck blood. Three pairs of legs are seen, with the long hindlegs adapted for jumping. Most fleas remain on their host only while feeding.
