"Places to Go, People to See!"
Giraffes can attain a speed of 35 miles per hour. Its neck swings in a pendular motion that provides balance and forward momentum. The long neck is used by males in "necking" contests during which the head is used like a baseball bat against each other's body in ritualized tests of strength. Both young and mature adults practice this "necking", which in mature males, determines mating rights.
