      <li><a href="#">Second</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Third</a></li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li class="dropdown"> <a href="#" data-toggle="dropdown">fadeInDown <b class="caret"></b></a>
    <ul class="dropdown-menu animated fadeInDown">
      <li><a href="#">First</a></li>

      <li><a href="#">Third</a></li>
    </ul>

      <li><a href="#">Third</a></li>
    </ul>

4. Call the plugin to enable the CSS3 on hover animations.

$("#demo").bootstrapDropdownOnHover();

5. Some options to set the animation behaviors.

$("#demo").bootstrapDropdownOnHover({
mouseOutDelay: 500, // Number of milliseconds to wait before closing the menu on mouseleave
responsiveThreshold: 992, // Pixel width where the menus should no-longer be activated by hover
hideBackdrop: true // Whether to remove the menu backdrop upon hover (mobile only)
});
