Giraffes live in Southern and Eastern Africa, where droughts cause food shortages. Long necks help them live in dry, food-scarce settings.
The savannas of Africa are home to the world's largest living bird species. The neck alone accounts for almost a foot and a half of an adult male ostrich's total height.
Gerenuk's diet consists primarily of shoots, prickly shrubs, fruits, and flowers. They can access vegetation up to 6-8 feet off the ground because to their long necks (0.8 ft.) and strong hind limbs.
This wading bird is about the size of a robin, with a long, down-curved bill and slightly webbed feet. The mudflats, marshes, mangroves, wetlands, ponds, bays, and swamps are just few of the places it calls home.
Most of their diet consists of the leaves, roots, stems, and tubers of aquatic and submerged plants. They can use their long, slender necks to feed both in the water and on land.
The body proportions of a camel are unusually large neck, hump, long, slender legs, and small tail. Their long, slender necks curve downward before rising to a delicate skull.
The adult height of the largest flamingo species is up to 1.45 metres (4.7 ft). Their long necks can reach a maximum length of 2.6 feet (0.79 metres).
The llama's large legs make it inefficient for foraging. Therefore, long necks have developed so that they can eat without having to kneel.
An alpaca is a type of camelid found in South America. It looks like a camel because to its long neck, but it doesn't have any humps.
