Macrauchenia Pre-Historic Toy
The strange-looking Macrauchenia seems like a cross between a llama and an elephant. It lived in South America during the last Ice Age roughly 10,000 years ago.
- History: Macrauchenia has features similar to giraffes, elephants and camels, though it is not closely related to any of those groups. The first fossils were discovered by Charles Darwin in Patagonia in 1834, and were incorrectly assumed to be a type of Mastodon. Darwin was not an expert on the subject of paleontology, so it wasn’t until the remains were examined by Sir Richard Owen that the animal was described more accurately as a slender, llama-like animal.
- Scientific Name: Macrauchenia (“long llama”)
- Characteristics: Our Macrauchenia toy features the slender legs, long neck, and short trunk associated with this unique hoofed mammal. This hand-painted figure is highly detailed down to its fur and tiny teeth.
- Size: This Macrauchenia toy figure is 5 inches long and 3 ½ inches tall, or about the size of a small index card.
- The Macrauchenia is part of the Wild Safari® Prehistoric World collection.
- Non-toxic and BPA free.
