Giraffes with their long necks - Craft Tips

It seems like a fairy tale, but it's really true. In the past, giraffes were deer-like animals with a short neck. Giraffes have evolved from that!

The first giraffes had to leaves of the trees , and the ones with the longest necks were best at the leaves.

The giraffes became healthier over time, they lived longer and got more baby giraffes. If animals get young,they pass certain properties. so. . there were more and more giraffes with alonger neck born. Slowly but surely the giraffes got a neck that 10x longer was than those of their ancestors!
