Neck is not currently attached to the body. It was going to be attached via a separating zipper (two, actually, as I could not find a single zipper that was long enough), but I never got around to sewing them in. Thus, depending on your needs, you could add zippers, sew the neck on permanently, or even just safety pin the neck on.
Front legs were going to be raised up by 6 to 9 inches (by extending the front support poles) to get proper giraffe posture, but this was never done due to the 8' ceilings in my living room. However, it would be easy enough to buy PVC pipe parts to make that change if desired.
