    Is this a flea?

    Hello.
    I found this dead thing this morning.
    Iíve seen fleas before and they were tiny black jumping things the size of a grain of sand.
    This thing was on my floor this morning already dead (or playing dead really well). I put the top of my little finger in for size comparison. Itís quite large in my opinion. And red.

    that is not a bedbug. that is a flea. They can get pretty big. If you had not referred to the tiny black things you have seen in the past as 'jumping', I would have suggested that those had been lice.
    Fleas are like ants - you can get tiny ones or big ones.

    Thanks for the help guys.
    Very strange, as my dog has not shown any signs of fleas before or since.
