The neck is a common derived characteristic of land vertebrates, not shared by their aquatic ancestors. In ﬁsh, the thoracic ﬁn girdle, the precursor of the scapula, coracoid and clavicle, is frequently fused to the caudal aspect of the skull. In contrast, as vertebrates emerged on to the dry land, the forelimb separated from the head and the intervening vertebrae specialised to form a relatively mobile region – the neck – to allow the head to be freely steered in many directions.
