    If I jumped ten times my height nice and deadly splat on the ground would follow.

    @6 what if we move a trampoline under you before you come back down?

    Anyway the frogs jump a distance of 10 times their length, not necessarily a height.

    Do you think that base they are sitting on shocked them to make them jump?

    And of course, the cube square law means that their jumping that great relative distance is a lot less impressive, in terms of distance per unit of muscle power, than that same relative distance would be if they were scaled to the weight of humans.

    Still fascinating.

    Want to see something neat? Watch the video again, but this time look at each frog’s eyes before they jump.
