Impala in Mid-Air

The impala, an African antelope with long, slender legs and muscular thighs. They are best known for their leaping abilities. When frightened, an impala will spring into action, bounding up to 33 feet and soaring 10 feet into the air. This skill is apparently more than just defensive. Impalas have been observed jumping around just to amuse themselves.
