Biomimetic robots have received more and more attention, as people try to learn from nature in which exist amazing and uniquely evolved mechanisms shown by very species. Fleas, as such one example, are best jumper of all known animals in the world, considering their body size. It can jump about 150 to 200 times its own body length. This paper reports on modeling and simulation of jumping mechanism of a biomimetic robot and provides a guide line for designing and modeling the biomimetic robot that can mimic fleas to jump very high length with respect to its body length.
