The camel is another that could be a beast of burden or a mount. It's long neck shares some similarities with the giraffe. Notice the cervical vertibrae are not only more numerous, but more elongated with greater ridges for neck muscles than oxen or horses. The head isn't heavy, but the neck is long. Compare the structure to the stout, heavy neck of the elephant.
