How the Giraffe got its Long Neck

A myth submitted to the site by Rebecca


One evening, in Africa, a giraffe called Becca was walking through the shady savannvah looking for leaves. She was very hungry. It was getting quite dark and the sun was going down. ”I wish I could find some food!” sighed Becca.

After a while Becca found an extremely juicy tree. She started nibbling the tree. She suddenly stepped back and fell into a massive, dark , gloomy hole...
“Ahhhh!” Becca started calling for help. Outside the hole lived a very friendly lion (unsurprisingly called Lion!) He had heard Becca calling for him so he came outside and saw that Becca had fallen into the hole head first! “I will help you!” said Lion. He pulled and pulled and pulled! At last when she came out she had a very long neck!

And that is why giraffes have very long necks!
