The Flea is one of a few pesky bugs found in Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf


[edit] How to Catch

Like the Ant, a Flea can only be caught by a more unique means which is only while feeding atop another resident's head to which you must catch it with your Net just as you would from a tree or in midair. They will usually be complaining about how itchy they are.

[edit] Player

This is what you player says when you catch a Flea:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

Fleas! Fleas! Fleas! Itchy!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a Flea! Itchy itchy!

[edit] Menu

When looking at the Flea in the bug menu it will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

The female flea lays up to 20 eggs a day, and is usually larger than the male. Gross!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Females can lay up to 20 eggs a day and are usually bigger than the males.

[edit] Museum

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

Heed my words, (Your Player's Name)! Bathe often! Wash yourself thoroughly! And shampoo regularly! Allow yourself to become filthy, and fleas move in! Blech! The very IDEA... Now I feel itchy.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Hoo now, have you ever had a chance to look at a flea up close and personal? They're utterly noisome! Especially vulgar are their flattened bodies, which allow them to wriggle into all sorts of places. Oh, mercy, I may need to sit on the floor for a moment. All this talk of fleas makes me feel rather woozy."

[edit] Real Life

In real life, the Flea is known as Aphaniptera(which means "wingless, blood-sucking insects"). They are descended from a family of flightless bugs known as Boreidae. They go through life stages similar to the common Butterfly which involve the egg, larva, pupa, and adult stages.
