The giraffe possesses the most extended neck of any living mammal. Giraffes grow to just about their full stature by four years of age, and they gain weight up until a few years after. The giraffe’s body is well built and strong to support its impressive neck.

They have muscles that are connected to long spines of the vertebrae of the upper back. There are only seven neck vertebrae, and they are stretched. Giraffes have valves in their neck to combat gravity when they stick their heads up.

They have unique vessels at the top of their brain, which controls their blood pressure. When they are on the move, it is the job of the neck to keep everything in balance, and they can also achieve speeds of up to 60mph.
