How the Giraffe got its Long Neck

A myth submitted to the site by John


Once upon a time there was a giraffe that could never reach the leaves on the high trees.

One day the giraffe found an apple and the giraffe was thinking that would be juicy.

The giraffe ran for the apple as fast as it could but a monkey came on a rope and snatched it just before the giraffe got it. The giraffe was so furious he chased the monkey then the monkey hid in a high tree.

The giraffe said” that’s not fair I haven’t got a long neck to reach the apple.” The monkey leaned down hanging by his tail and pulled the giraffe’s ears and said” life’s tough “.

Then the monkey noticed the giraffes neck was getting longer and longer and longer and that’s how the giraffe got it’s long neck.
