Giraffes have long necks which enables them to browse tree leaves which they love to eat.
The African plains giraffe is the tallest mammal on earth.
This giraffe has a neck that extends up to eight feet above its shoulders.
The giraffe’s neck has seven highly lengthened vertebrae, the exact same number of vertebrae that every other mammal has.
However, some zoologists claim there are eight vertebrae in a giraffe’s neck, not seven as previously thought.
The vertebrae are separated by highly flexible joints, and the base of the neck has spines which protrude upward to form a hump over the shoulders and hold muscles that keep the neck upright.
Just goes to show you that size doesn’t always make a difference.
How is the weather up there spotty?
