The females were up to 2 cms long, humongous compared to modern day fleas. They probably fed on the blood of dinosaurs, but at least they could jump; they probably moved more like lice.
Fixed your link there Adam.
I'm itching just thinking about them
Fairly sure they still exist in some of the less salubrious hotels I've visited.
What was wrong with the link? Can´t you resize the pics? I try to do so but when I post, they're all gigantic again
The link you originally posted was a direct link to the image. Copy n' paste error methinks. I do it all the time.
My bad. Thanks for fixing it
Not sure if these are the same giant fleas, but a couple species called Pseudopulex jurassicus and Pseudopulex magnus are in the news right now, and the scientists say they had likely a very painful bite.
