Description:

The name macrauchenia means "long llama." This early horse-like mammal is a member of the order litopterna and the family macraucheniidae.

Macrauchenia has powerful legs like those of a horse, and a long neck like a llama. The fur of the macrauchenia is similar to that of a camel. This layer of warmth was very important to an animal trying to survive the ice age, even in the southern climates favored by macrauchenia.

The most noticeable feature of the macrauchenia is its trunk, which is similar to that of an elephant. The trunk is prehensile, meaning it can be used to grab things, especially food. The feet of this herbivorous quadruped have three toes each, similar to those of a rhinoceros.

Macrauchenia uses its high crowned cheek teeth to mash the leaves and branches that make up the bulk of its diet. Using its height, as well as its prehensile trunk, this animal can browse from the treetops, finding food that other animals can not reach. These animals stroll in the same way that a modern day elephant does.

During the early Pleistocene age, 7,000,000 to 20,000 years ago, macrauchenia was a common sight in parts of Argentina. Today they can only be found in your zoo. With their impressive trunks and strange appearance, they are sure to attract attention from your guests.
