Amazing Animals

Giraffes - an Engineering Marvel

 2000 Burgers' ZooOne of the most awkward looking, but graceful moving creatures in the world is the giraffe. Standing up to 18 feet tall and looking much like an animal put together by a committee, its most prominent feature is its neck. What is most remarkable about the giraffe though is the amazing engineering required that allows the giraffe to exist at all.

For instance, when a giraffe lowers its head to get a drink of water it would, without its specially designed features, literally blow out its brain because of the sudden, massive increase in blood pressure. But the giraffe was engineered with reinforced artery walls, anti-pooling valves, a web of small blood vessels and pressure-sensing nerves that assure an adequate blood flow to the brain at just the right pressure. But that is not all of the engineering needed to make a giraffe possible.

Giraffes have the most powerful heart among land animals because of the need to pump blood 12 feet up to its head. But with all that pressure inside giraffes, why don't giraffes bleed to death whenever they are cut? Here we can see more of the engineering marvel that is the giraffe. The arteries and veins have a super tough membrane so that it doesn't rip apart when cut. The capillaries and blood cells are only a third the size of those in humans, so there is less bleeding when cut.

When we see a creature as well engineered as the giraffe, we see the amazing design in God's Creation. For all of the features of the giraffe are necessary for it to function. Any of the unique characteristics of the giraffe would either be useless or harmful if they existed by themselves. Only when all the giraffe's features are fully developed and in place are they beneficial to giraffe survival. In fact giraffes are so well designed that NASA scientists have studied giraffe skin in their development of gravity suits for astronauts.

Evolution, with its story of gradual, mindless change, can offer no rational explanation for how all of these specially and uniquely designed organs could have all come together simultaneously by blind chance.

Evolutionists speculate that the giraffe adapted to a drier and more difficult environment by developing its long neck to eat leaves on the tall trees. What they can't explain is how the younger, shorter giraffes managed to survive or why so many other vegetarian animals never developed long necks.

Despite what the evolutionists would like people to believe, their speculation and storytelling is not science. What we see in the giraffe, as in other aspects of Creation, is the careful and deliberate design God put in His Creation.

And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:25
