Giraffes are large mammals that lived during the ice ages into the present day.

Traits

Herbivorous mammals, giraffes have long ears and snouts, short horns, and long tails. Most notable of giraffes is their characteristic long neck and legs, with which they browse from the tops of trees, and their long legs for running from predators and reaching heights. These long necks are used for grazing from treetops. With several subspecies of giraffe existing, pelt patterns vary, though their fur is usually tan with dark brown spots and black manes.

History

Giraffes once lived on the continent Pangaea, on plains untouched by the frosts of the ice ages, and were once short-necked animals that fed off bushes and shrubs: their long necks were obtained when a saber-tooth squirrel named Scrat had ended up in the Earth's core and began the continental shift, which separated the land that would one day become Africa from the rest of the world, which caused the land to split in two, causing giraffes that were grazing on shrubs on either side of the divide to suddenly sprout long necks, much to their confusion.

Behind the Scenes

Giraffes do not have striped hindquarters and developed their long necks not through a sudden shift in continents, but rather through years of adaption.

Like many animals seen in the Ice Age franchise, giraffes were not true animals of the Ice Age, having evolved long after the end of the Ice Age. However, their ancestors might have been alive during the Ice Age.
