February 29 is Leap Day — a day for adjusting the calendar, and for saving the frog. In particular, it’s a huge day for Amphibian Ark and scores of other organizations trying to prevent the mass extinction of frogs and other amphibian species. But let’s have some fun for a moment. So how far can frogs really leap? I surfed around and submit these borrowed factoids:

The longest leap on record may be 33 feet 5.5 inches, according to Leapin’ Froggies.

They can jump 10 times the length of their bodies, according to Angela’s Pond Life Page.
