Like Noah and the biblical ark, a boatload of animals was shipped from Africa to remote Calauit Island in the Philippines in the 1970s
The descendants of these animals—20 giraffes, along with dozens of zebra and antelope—are now among the most intriguing legacies of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
The following picture will give you an idea of how small they are (my wife's height is 160cm). I asked the local guides why they were so small (around 3 meters height, some even less than 3 meters), they told me because they are island born and they have become smaller compared to their ancestors.
To me this seems to be a perfect example of Island dwarfism. But when I google it I can't find any result of this. The only result I got was the dwarf giraffes found in Uganda. The science.org even used the title "World's first dwarf giraffes spotted in Uganda and Namibia", also check NYTimes article "Dwarf Giraffes Discovery Surprises Scientists" for detailed information of that finding.
So are Calauit giraffes an good example of Island dwarfism? If not, what is the explanation of their small sizes, e.g. does the NYTimes article's words "The condition, also known as skeletal dysplasia, affects bone growth, often resulting in short stature." apply here ?
