Well question 1 is a bit difficult to answer, mine don't stay still long enough to measure them! But they are quite longer than you'd think, I'd estimate that on my female (bigger than the males) her body is about 2 1/2 inches or so and her legs would be around 5 inches totally outstretched. The males would be probably 1/2" or so shorter as are their bodies.

As far as jumping, they could jump several feet, but mainly climb like a a monkey, thus the nickname monkey frog. They would jump to escape danger and also in establishing territory.

I'm going to attempt to affix a picture here, it is of my female climbing about, you can see the incredibly long length of the legs.
