How the Giraffe got its Long Neck.

A myth submitted to the site by Tilly


In the savannah there lived a giraffe called Jimmy, he lived with his family. The savannah had a beautiful sunset. The sun looked like a big light bulb. In the savannah there are other giraffes - not just Jimmy. Jimmy’s favourite food is leaves. He loves leaves!

It was always quiet in the savannah. One sunny day, Jimmy went for a walk suddenly there was a huge tree so he walked ever and got some leaves to take back to his family. He stretched and stretched and all a sudden his neck started to get bigger! The other giraffes thought it looked cool and they wanted to reach leaves that are high up too. Soon all the giraffes were trying to stretch their necks too.

That is how giraffes got long necks.
