The Giraffe. Episode 4.
This new science series uncovers the anatomical secrets of some of the animal kingdom's most extraordinary species and answers such age-old questions as: How did the elephant get its trunk? In this episode, with veterinary scientist Mark Evans as guide, a team of experts investigate the giraffe. Creationists question how this extraordinary creature could have evolved such a long neck, but for evolutionary biologist Professor Richard Dawkins the anatomy of the world's tallest animal provides some of the best arguments in favour of Darwinian natural selection. For example, one nerve takes a huge detour up and down the long neck, from the voice box to the brain, via the chest - hardly the work of an 'Intelligent Designer'. And, despite its length, the neck still only has seven vertebrae - the same number as almost all mammals, from mice to humans and whales.
