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). It was a stunning jump, but it fell 7cm short of the world record of 2.45m (8ft), set by Cuba's Javier Sotomayor way back in 1993.
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 first is the absolute height an animal reaches. However, that tends to favour the largest animals, so the second option is to consider how high an animal jumps relative to its own size.

You can find a lot of weird shit on the streets of Phoenix, And most of the time, you don't even have to be looking. Sometimes, though, you come across things that were destined to find you. Like owls.

Settle in for a fine selection of videos of a fine dog trying to dog finely and generally failing miserably. Good puppy.

An octopus has made a brazen escape from the national aquarium in New Zealand by breaking out of its tank, slithering down a 50-metre drainpipe and disappearing into the sea. In scenes reminiscent of Finding Nemo, Inky - a common New Zealand octopus - made his dash for freedom after the lid of his tank was accidentally left slightly ajar.
