RG> Question: Why do we never find fossils of these "short giraffes?" You do not because you don't know where to look. Try a paleontology text. I suppose you'll get lost on your way there, so here's a few citations for you to mull: Genus _Samotherium_, a Pliocene "short necked" giraffe. Genus _Paleotragus_, a Miocene "short necked" giraffe. Genus _Sivatherium_, an Eocene "short necked" giraffe. Oh, and BTW, ever heard of the okapi? It's a modern equivalent of a short-necked giraffe.
