What animals jump high?

Mammals listed highest to low:Pumas, tigers, lions, Alpine ibex, kangaroo.s Cold blooded listed highest to low : mackerel sharks, killer whales, devil fish, salmon. Well yes these are all good but if compared to body size The Common House Flea: Certainly, fleas cannot compete with other contestants in terms of the actual height they can jump. Their best record is merely one foot. Fleas win the title because they are able to jump the highest relative to their body size. Let's consider the facts. Kangaroos are about 6 feet tall; they can jump 2 times their height. Pumas are better than kangaroos. They are capable of reaching 5-6 times their height in one bound. For fleas, they can leap more than 130 times their height, making them the gold medallist in the high jump! So if we were to scale up a flea to our size it would be like us jumping over halfway up the empire estate building!

What animal can jump the longest distance?

Kangaroos and Snow Leopards are known for their long jumps. A roo can jump 12 metres (40 feet), with the average being 7-9 metres (25-30 feet), and up to a height of 3 metres (about 9 feet). The maximum jumping distance of a the largest kangaroo, a red kangaroo (in full flight), has been measured at 13.5 metres (about 45 feet). A Snow leopard can jump up to 15 metres (50 feet) horizontally and 6.5 metres (20 feet) vertically, an action which it uses to ambush prey. However, the snow leopard cannot sustain these long jumps for great distances as kangaroos can. Technically, a flea can jump the longest distance in proportion to its size. It has been calculated that if a flea were a human it could jump roughly 110 feet.
