Amazing photo of the tiny giraffe-necked weevil from @eighteenthirtyfive
The giraffe weevil gets its name from its enormously long neck, which is 2-3 times longer in the males. They can use this extended neck to fight for the right to mate with a female. She, on the other hand, uses her smaller neck to roll a leaf tube nest into which a single egg is layed. One of the longest weevil species, male giraffe-necked weevils, as they're also known, grow to around 2.5cm in length.
