Giraffe & Okapi

Artiodactyls or even-toed ungulates (mammals with hooves) appear in the fossil record in the early Eocene (56 – 47 million years ago) and posses a specialized skeleton for a terrestrial environment and herbivore dentition. Included in Artiodactyla order are giraffes and okapi. Giraffes are the tallest land animals, with a neck that can reach up to 6 feet long. They have 7 cervical vertebrae, each about 10 inches long. The okapi is the only living relative of the giraffe. Both animals have a prehensile tongue for stripping buds off brush.
