I know it’s a cartoon but is the Ice Age an accurate depiction of what happened?

    The fact that the movie starts with animals traveling together in relocating to warmer climates is very close to the truth. The attitudes of the animals, like the Sabre tooth cat hunting and traveling in groups, again very accurate. Another note to consider is the terrain, how there was ice and lava both as the animals migrated which is also true because of the rapid changes the crust of the earth was going through at that time. However today we can correctly say that the Sabre Tooth cat doesn’t survive for long considering that it is extinct at present. Other little tidbits can be found at the link below.

    Squirrels still chase nuts around so I would say it is pretty accurate.

    The first two movies in the franchise were pretty consistent at putting the time frame within the late pleistocene (the most recent ice age), considering mammoths, saber-toothed cats, giant sloths and humans were all seen since the first installment. However, they threw all that out the window on the third movie when they introduced a family of tyrannosaurus rexes into the story. They went extinct 65 million years ago, long before even the beginning of the pleistocene.
