    Default Do fish have necks?

    I'd like to make a necklace for a fish but I'm unsure if fish have necks.

    It rather depends on the type of fish, doesn't it?

    I don't believe so, but I once dreamed that trout had lips.

    Fish have necks. They just don't have shoulders. Wouldn't gill rings or studs be cooler? How about a tat between the eyes?

    The Oxford dictionary defines a neck as, "The part of a person's or animal's body connecting the head to the rest of the body." Well, fish definitely have a head and they have a body so is the vertebral bone that connects the head to the body the neck? Do you have to have range of motion for it to be considered a neck? I've found a few articles that talk about this fish called Tiktaalik which supposedly is the first fish to have a neck which means that fish generally don't have necks? I may go by the zoology department at my university and ask as I haven't found a definitive answer online. I'd feel rather species insensitive to be making a necklace for a neckless fish.

    You all have started me in one wondering about quite a few others things as well . . .

    The ichthyologist (that I'm sure thought I was crazy) informed me that fish do not have necks with exception to seahorses. They were actually pretty helpful and good humored about answering so *thumbs up* for ichthyologists!
