Animals evolve traits that help them survive or attract mates. Some species have majestic manes. But manes have other uses. Species-specific length and location.

Bactrian camel

Bactrian camels have 9.8-inch throat and neck manes. Warm winter manes. These animals have two fat humps that allow them to go without water or food.

Sable Antelope

Sable antelopes also have manes. One mane is on their neck and another is on their throat. Their horns can grow to 5.2 feet long, like an elephant's tusk. The rearward horn arc of both males and females is unusual.

Roan Antelope

Roan antelopes have shoulder-length manes. Their longer manes protect them more than zebra manes. Brown bodies with black, brown, or grey manes. One of Africa's largest antelopes, can weigh 620 pounds.


Thicket-maned wildebeests are antelopes. Manes are sexe-neutral. Long beards, big muzzles, horns, bushy tails. Large African grasseaters. They can outrun lions, cheetahs, and hyenas at 50 mph.


Male giraffes can reach 18 feet tall. They have a 6-foot neck. Short erect hairs on their neck aren't long enough to defend them from insects or predators. Longer, thicker manes are supposed to be for mating.

 Lion-tailed Macaque

The lion-tailed macaque has a black-tipped tail and a silver-white mane. Because of their facial hair, they're dubbed beard apes. Shy, forest-dwelling arboreal mammals.

Maned Sloth 

The maned sloth lives in Brazil's Atlantic rainforests. They're similar to other sloths, except for their long black hair. Males have darker, longer manes than females, who have two long tufts.


Wild and tame horse manes are protective. It defends the horse's neck from predators and wards off mosquitoes. Their manes provide shelter and warmth on sunny days.
