I am born high only to fall low, attention !

Leopard and I share a similare taste for fashion.

I may be browsing for Charles's hypothesis on my evolution.

My toes are even and It is as if I look upon them from heaven.

In this category, no one is larger then me.

If I keep fighting. Mine will become bald, no more hairy.

Me and my genus fight neck and neck for hierarchy.

This is my first one, I hope it's not to easy and you have fun. I will accept awnser with all lines explanations.

  • $\begingroup$ Do you really mean "Mine's", or is that a grocer's apostrophe? (Just asking, because it makes a difference in how I interpret the line) $\endgroup$ – LindaJeanne Jul 6 '16 at 22:21

Is it:

Giraffe

I am born high only to fall low, attention !

Giraffe babies fall out of their standing mothers.

Leopard and I share a similare taste for fashion.

Giraffes share a similar colouring to leopards.

I may be browsing for Charles's hypothesis on my evolution.

It's debatable but there is a theory that Giraffes evolved long necks to browse/eat high leaves.. Marius' answer mentions that neck-fighting was a factor.

My toes are even and It is as if I look upon them from heaven.

Giraffes have two toes on each foot, and look down on them from their heads high up on their long necks.

In this category, no one is larger then me.

Giraffes are the tallest land animal (largest is probably not quite right.. elephants are bigger). Largest even-toed ungulate? (hippo is probably larger) Largest Giraffidae? From OP: Largest ruminant.

If I keep fighting. Mine's will become bald, no more hairy.

From Wild Life Ranch Texas: "Giraffes’ horns, or ossicones, are cylinder-shaped, short, thick, and covered with hair. The male giraffe’s ossicones are generally larger than the female giraffe’s ossicones and are bald on top due to fighting with other males."

Me and my genus fight neck and neck for hierarchy.

Giraffes fight by slapping necks

  • $\begingroup$ Like you mentionned tallest in (5), it should be referred in (4). Hint for (5) : Elephant might (is) not be in this category ;) Girafe is larger $\endgroup$ – Waker Jul 6 '16 at 13:36

My shot:

Giraffe

I am born high only to fall low, attention !

Giraffes give birth standing up so the baby giraffe comes into this world with "a boom"

Leopard and I share a similare taste for fashion.

Similar coloring

I may be browsing for Charles's hypothesis on my evolution.

There are a couple of theories about why giraffes have such long necks. Some scientists believe it's simply a matter of natural selection. Giraffes fight by beating each other with their heads and necks. This is called “necking." Source: http://wonderopolis.org/wonder/why-do-giraffes-have-long-necks/ So this is a reference to Darwin's theory of evolution

My toes are even and It is as if I look upon them from heaven.

Giraffes have 2 toes of the same length on each foot and it looks down on other creatures from a big height.

In this category, no one is larger then me.

"The giraffe is the tallest mammal in the world, with even new-born babies being taller than most humans." Source http://www.onekind.org/education/animals_a_z/giraffe/

If I keep fighting. Mine's will become bald, no more hairy.

Because the way the giraffes fight by slamming their necks parts of they necks become bald after a too many fights.

Me and my genus fight neck and neck for hierarchy.

Giraffes fight using their necks.

  • $\begingroup$ (4), (5), (6) need a little more work, you might get the accepted awsner if you find it first. $\endgroup$ – Waker Jul 6 '16 at 13:28
  • $\begingroup$ @Waker. That's the best I can do. If this is not enough, I quit :) $\endgroup$ – Marius Jul 6 '16 at 13:36
  • $\begingroup$ Quite good but like I mentionned to Arth, heigth is used for (4), (5) talk about something else. I see how confusing it can be now, I used toes and them in the same sentence, them should refere to others creatures not to toes $\endgroup$ – Waker Jul 6 '16 at 13:42
