Red Squirrel Legs

Although the European Red Squirrels

aren't related to the flying squirrel family,

they still have some amazingly strong,

powerful and very flexible back legs.

They are so powerful that

they can jump 6 to 8 times

their own body length,

from a complete standstill.

That's the equivalent to a human,

jumping an entire European truck length,

from a complete standstill,

without a running head start.

If that's not impressive enough,

they can flip their rear legs, 180 degrees

so they can grab trees and their bark,

run around it, upside down and

side to side, just as fast

as if they were running on the ground,

basically defying gravity.
