    Where is the "fossil record"?
    I want to find the record of fossils of giraffes from pre-okapi to now.
    Pre-okapi - 2 million years old found in tanzania
    One level removed - 1.8 million years old
    Two levels removed - 1.7 million years old

    Actually that is WHY it evolved and I don't care if Darwinian speculation is correct as to the reason for the long neck. I want to know the dates, names, dig sites, length of neck, etc

    Then you will have to 'dig' it up yourself. That is beyond my purvue in the way of accessing information. Of course if you had access to the archeological information from the museum that did these particular digs, then you would have all you need.

    And maybe you can start saying, please, but I won't do your research for you.

    Forgive me for not using the magic word. Might I equally suggest that you not answer questions that you clearly have no background in.

    No one has that background here. It is an extremely specific question. Seriously, how many people would know "dates, names, dig sites, length of neck, etc"?

    Actually, that is my background to a certain extent. No one with this background could answer your question right off the top of their head, without gathering this information, but I am not prepared to do that for you. It would take me days to go through contacts at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

    We are all volunteers here with other jobs that keep us busy as well.

    Rudeness isn't accepted here; and yes it is a magic word that opens doors.

    Are you close to a university library or even a natural history museum that has a library? Even a large public library might have the database you need to access the research papers/digs findings and be able to do the searching/research on this topic.
