WHAT IS THE NECK LENGTH OF A GIRAFFE?

Giraffes' lengthy necks enable them to consume vegetation that is higher than that of other animals. Because

of this, the giraffe can get far more food and prevent malnutrition much more easily, making a

longer neck a beneficial evolutionary feature. So how long is the neck of a giraffe? 

Actually, they are longer than the typical person by almost 6 feet on average! The giraffe's 

 typical leg height is 6 feet, giving it a total height of 12 feet. The typical human is just 

5 feet 9 inches tall, therefore they are more than twice as big as the ordinary person.
