Carnivores: Ice Age Edit

Tatem Games announced on their Facebook page on July 16, 2013 that they were adding Paraceratherium[3] to the game in addition to Hyaenodon[4] in 5-7 days. It has been updated on November 26, 2013.

In game, Paraceratherium is a huge, quadrupedal herbivore that thunders across its environment. Like most of the herbivores in the polar regions of the planet, Paraceratherium occasionally stops to graze on low-lying shrubbery. This enormous beast will also stomp about and shake its head violently, perhaps as a warning to smaller predators or to other Paraceratherium who may be intruding its territory. The Paraceratherium is dangerous if wounded, and at close range will charge the hunter if shot. If a hunter fails to down a charging Paraceratherium, the animal will repeatedly crush the hunter under its mighty front legs, much like the Brontotherium. Like Diatryma, Paraceratherium can swim if the water is far down.

BiologyEdit

Like all herbivorous mammals of FMM UV-32, Paraceratherium walks about on four strong legs. It has a very long neck, capable of reaching foliage short-necked mammals cannot. Paraceratherium has a large yet loose top lip, most likely used as a tiny trunk in wrapping around branches before scraping off the leaves with its teeth. Unlike the other mammals dwelling in the polar areas, the Paraceratherium is not covered in a thick coat of wool, or even small, bristle-like hairs. Instead, it has a very thick, rhinoceros-like skin, which may help protect it from predators as well as cooler temperatures. Paraceratherium is light tan in color with dark brown spots, much like a modern day giraffe. Paraceratherium's calls are like a sheep and cow sound.

Trivia Edit

  • Much like with Diatryma, the game uses a junior synonym for Paraceratherium instead of the correct taxonomic name.
  • In the Trophy Room, Yeti trophies turn into Paraceratherium trophies while the update is uploading on November 26, 2013.
  • For some reason, the Paraceratherium charges at you at any distance when wounded, this is due to a programming error, or was made like that.
  • Though the game said that it was the biggest mammal on the planet, it is even smaller and shorter than the Mammoth, The Yeti, and other big creatures.
