Nature Moments: Leaping Snow Fleas

The latest Nature Moment video from Nat Wheelwright takes a close look at a creature that can be easy to miss in winter — the Snow Flea.

What animal can jump 100 times the length of his body – without using any of his six legs? Take a walk in the snow on a sunny February day and look closely in your boot prints.

Nature Moments are filmed with the help of Wilder Nicholson, Rebecca Goldfine, Tom Porter, Paul Benham and Genie Wheelwright.
