What's this strange shrimp/giant flea thing?

Can anyone tell me what this is?  It was found on our flea trap today.  I really hope it isn't a flea because it is huge - about 8mm.  We haven't caught any fleas in the trap.

It looks like a shrimp.  It's brownish reddish colour.  It was found indoors in the room our rabbits live in.  We've not long moved in & having been here for about a month the rabbits got fleas.  The previous occupants had cats.  They have been treated & we have sprayed the floors but they still have fleas.  So we put down a flea trap about a week ago & nothing.  Until this monster turned up today.  My husband took it off the trap with sticky tape & its legs came off so those long legs you can see aren't attached (it was already dead!)  Also the bit that looks like its nose or something is also just a bit of shell that came loose. 

 

What is it?!
