sort of. you can think of it like having a fleech healthbar and a bee sting healthbar if you want but don't forget it resets when you leave the area and enter a new one. let's say for the sake of argument that it takes 5 fleech licks or 5 bee stings before you're killed (abe being killed on the fifth lick/sting), if you were licked 3 times before leaving the area that doesn't mean you go through the next area with only 2 hit points left on your 'fleech healthbar' or whatever, it just resets.
so you could get licked 4 times, leave the area and enter a new one and get licked another 4 times without dying. same goes for bee stings. if you can get off the screen into a new area without dying then your 'healthbars' reset.
on the other hand mudokons might have a permanent healthbar when they start slapping each other or go suicidal, and that doesn't reset as far as i know. then again i've never tried leaving the area and coming back to them so maybe that would reset their healthbar. don't quote me on this tho cuz i have no fucking idea.
