Squirrel Flea

Squirrel Flea
Roseville, Placer County, California, USA
September 23, 2012
Size: 2-3 mm
One of my cats killed a squirrel and left it on the back porch. I found some fleas on it and preserved them in alcohol. I think I overdid it on specimen preparation while I was making a slide of it and lost some bristles.
