Sara Springtail is the little kid on the block at only 1/16 of an inch long. She and the hundreds of members of her family are very light colored and easy to see in the bedding. How would you like that many brothers and sisters?
Sara loves to jump around wherever she goes. She can't fly, because she is wingless. She uses a prong under her tummy to spring her forward like a built-in pogo stick.
Springtails live in soils all over the world from very warm climates to very cold climates.
