Caption

Head and thorax (upper body) of a cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The head (upper right) is helmet-shaped to assist the flea when moving through the fur of its cat host, and comb-like spines (ctenidia, upper left) anchor the flea in its host's fur. The mouthparts are modified to pierce the cat's skin and suck blood. Two of the three pairs of legs are also seen (lower left and right). Magnification: x65 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
