Giraffe is the tallest animal in the world and the biggest ruminant, reaching up to 5–6 m (16–20 ft) height and has an average weight of 1,600 kg (3,500 lb) for males and 830 kg (1,830 lb) for females. The giraffe has an extremely elongated neck, which can be up to 2 m long. There is the "competing browsers hypothesis" which was originally suggested by Charles Darwin and it suggests that competitive pressure from smaller browsers, such as kudu, steenbok and impala, encouraged the elongation of the neck, as it enabled giraffes to reach food that competitors could not. There is also research suggesting that browsing competition is intense at lower levels, and giraffes feed more efficiently (gaining more leaf biomass with each mouthful) high in the canopy.
