"Macrauchenias" were large mammals that lived during the Ice Ages.


Macrauchenias, as they were called, had small ears, long thin necks and legs with thick three-toed feet, and long tails. Most notably, however, the mammals had short trunks with which to hold such items as branches. Macrauchenias travelled in herds, along with the other creatures during the ice ages that headed South. They are mostly tan but in Ice Age 2 there are reddish brown ones too, and they are said to be Indricotheres.
