Default parasites in small game?

Hey everyone, quick question... I killed a squirrel yesterday and was planning on skinning him when i looked at its belly and saw long nasty orange bugs running around on it! are these things fleas or something? will they attach themselves to me and my family if we come into contact? i would have posted this on the small game page but no one seems to read thos threads... thanks in advanced!

alot of people say waste, not much of any animal is ever wasted like lets say we through the remains of a dead grouse on the side of the road or in the bush, they will more then likely get eaten by a wolf or bear.

Could Also Be The Soft Shelled Tick Dosn't Specify What Color Is But They Exclusivly Feed On Small Animals Such As Rodents And Live Near The Animal.
