A giraffe may have a tall neck but it still has 7 bones like humans and all other mammals.


The extremely elongated neck of the giraffe results from the disproportionate lengthening of the cervical vertebrae and not by the addition of more vertebrae.
The elongation of the neck takes place largely after birth.
