Spring in its step

A timeslice sequence shows the various poses a bushbaby makes as it jumps through the air. It leaps 2.25 metres in height, the equivalent of a human jumping two stacked double-decker buses. To achieve this, its legs and feet act like springs converting the energy of impact back into propulsion. The bush baby waits until the top of its jump before reaching out and uses its tail as a counter balance.
