Caption: Hedgehog flea claws. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of claws at the tip of a hedgehog flea's (Archaeopsylla erinacei) leg. The claws help to anchor the flea to its host's fur. Fleas are external parasites that may carry and transmit diseases. This flea may also feed on pets and humans. Fleas only remain on their host whilst feeding.
