The Greatest Jumper On Earth Is Probably Not A Flea

At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Canada's Derek Drouin took the gold in the high jump, with a leap of 2.38 m (7ft 10in). As ever with our athletic feats, there are plenty of wild animals that leap far higher, reaching dizzying heights in a single bound.

There are two ways you can measure the highest jumps. The absolute height an animal reaches and how high an animal jumps relative to its own size. Depending which you choose, the title of highest jumper could go to several different species.
