Idk if a flea would find an iguana as a good host what with the furlessness lol. But they may take a bite in a pinch. But it is certainly possible for them to hitchhike on you toget into your home! Fleas and ticks will be nasty this year because the winter was pretty mild. Are you sure it wasn’t a tick? They will choose a human host if available. A flea may too but they prefer hairier mammals lol

Some mites can get big but far as jumping I don’t think they can... most likely it was just a stray flea..you may have even brought in the house from your clothes...being outside and it jumped on you.....
