Giraffe-necked weevil

Giraffe-necked weevils got their name from their long necks that are similar to that of the giraffe's. The male's neck is averagely 2 or 3 times longer than the female's.  They lay their one and only egg in two certain plants called Dichaetanthera cordifolia and Dichaetanthera arborea. The average length of an adult Giraffe -necked weevil is just under an inch, about the size of a quarter.
