In standard evolutionary thought, the giraffe tends to be explained in terms of a "long-necked survival strategy."
The giraffe is an animal in which everything seems built around lengthening—from its tail hairs to its long eyelashes, from its long legs to its long neck and head. It was an unexpected gift to come across a giraffe that was embodying elongation to the fullest, eating that long fruit of a sausage tree.
Giraffes have long eyelashes because it helps them to keep little fragments of wood falling into their eyes as they grab the leaves of the tree or bush. Also, female giraffes flirt by fluttering their eyelashes at the male giraffe they like.
Thank you so much for your explanation ...so interesting to know,,,,wonderful great macro shot of the eye MF :-)) I like it.
