Dr. Wilson's Flea Circus - An Extraordinary Entomological Exhibition Featuring Trained Fleas Executing Acts of Skill and Daring - presents the remarkable performance feats of the human flea, Pulex irritans. You'll see a trained flea rear up on her hind legs - the back two of her six legs! You'll see a flea push an object across the stage that is hundreds of times her own weight, the equivalent of a grown man pushing a weight of twenty-three tons! You'll see a flea on the flying trapeze, displaying a skill and artistic expression unmatched by anything in the Insect Kingdom! You'll see a flea walk the high wire a foot above the stage, the equivalent of a human high-wire artist braving a height ten times that of Niagara Falls! Finally, you'll see a flea shot from a cannon high into the air, protected only by its natural exoskeleton, to land safely in a pool of water!
The performers are small, but their hearts are full of love! They crawl in the dust, but their eyes are on the stars! See the show that has brought smiles to the faces, and delight to the hearts, of all who have seen this unique attraction! It's Dr. Wilson's Flea Circus, An Extraordinary Entomological Exhibition Featuring Trained Fleas Executing Acts of Skill and Daring!
The Critics Have Spoken!
"The fleas were delightfully funny and so talented!...It's so unusual and funny..."
Susan Plimpton, Children's Librarian, Southwest Harbor Public Library
"The audience watched with rapt attention...Dr. Wilson both shocked and entertained the audience...then really stumped 'em...A fast-talking, insect-training hustler..."
Emily Dufton, Bar Harbor Times
