Why do giraffes have long necks?

Giraffes are really spectacular. Their size and physiognomy are exceptional, which has made them an object of study in multiple disciplines. According to the classic Darwinian theory, giraffes have developed an inordinate length of neck to reach the highest leaves of the trees . However, for zoologist Rob Simmons of the Namibian Ministry for Wildlife, the neck of giraffes is just a weapon . In the confrontations they have to take over the females, the males swing their necks to force their heads to collide with their rival . Thus, the specimens with the longest neck are capable of delivering stronger blows.
