Giraffes, like humans, have 7 neck bones. But a giraffe’s neck is about 6 feet long. Its neck bones are big and heavy. The giraffe has strong neck muscles to support its neck bones. The giraffe’s extra large heart pumps blood all the way up to its head. Giraffes live in Africa. The plains of central and eastern Africa are dotted with acacia trees. Acacia leaves are the giraffe’s favorite food. Other hooved animals roam these great plains. But only the giraffe and the elephant are tall enough to eat from the treetops.
