This Happy Monday, we've compiled our favourite pictures of animals leaping to spread a little cheer

Jumping is often associated with happiness – as a physical reaction to good news or simply as the result of being in an exceptionally good mood. It is also connected to spring and the season's plethora of hopping bunnies and skipping lambs. And as it's now March and spring has almost officially sprung, we thought we'd celebrate with these hilarious images of animals leaping. From a euphoric crocodile to three bounding bulldogs and an adorably soaring mouse, we hope these capering creatures have you jumping for joy too.

Happy Monday! #anotherhappymonday
