Giraffe

(Giraffa caelopardalis)

These are the tallest animals in the world but their necks only contain seven cervical vertebrae the same amount as a human. There height means that they can browse at a height not accessible to other animals and use their eighteen inch tongue strip branches clean of leaves. Normally found in herds or ‘towers of giraffes’ they be spread up to a kilometre apart but can still have eye contact with each other.
