|Manny's first child|
Close to his parents, this calf was well protected by both Manny and his mother, loving them both. One day, though, a group of humans on a hunt discovered the mammoth family and gave chase. As they ran, the calf was led away by his mother as Manny warded off the hunters, surrounded by them on all sides so that he could not reach his family. The hunters cornered both the calf and his mother into a cliff wall with spears as other humans prepared to drop boulders on them.
The passing of his wife and child had left Manny embittered against the world for years to come, until he developed a new herd with two other creatures, a ground sloth named Sid and a saber-tooth tiger named Diego, the former of which convinced Manny in time to let go of his troubled past.
This young mammoth was close to its parents, who watched over it closely. Unlike other mammoths, this calf had not yet grown its tusks.
