I flea can jump around 200 times its body length (about 7 inches)
Fleas are extremely small. They vary between one millimeter and one centimeter in length. They are parasites that live by sucking the blood from other living creatures. Fleas have no wings but they have three pairs of remarkably strong legs. Depending on its size, an average flea can leap about 20 to 25 centimeters (8 to 10 inches) upwards or about 30 to 35 centimeters (12 to 14 inches) along. It can usually manage any distance between 50 and 100 times its own length.
If an average man could leap rather more than 50 times his own height then he would be able to clear 100 meters.
I don't know; however, I always remember this one thing from a 'facts' page in an old Superman Annual, from when I was A kid, it said that if a man had the same jumping power as a flea, he would be able to clear the Empire State Building. Is that possible? I don't know, but that has stuck in my head for many years.
