Well, why not call it the Big Chill or the Nippy era?

I'm just sayin', how do we know

it's an Ice age?

Because of all the ice.

Well, things just got a little chillier.

Help. Help.

Come on, kids, let's go. The traffic's movin'.

But, but, but, Dad.

No buts. You can play extinction later.

Okay. Come on, guys.

So, where's Eddie?

He said he was on the verge

of an evolutionary breakthrough.


I'm flying.

Some breakthrough.

- Look out.

- You're going the wrong way.

Crazy mammoth.

Do the world a favor.

Move your issues off the road!

If my trunk was that small,

I wouldn't draw attention to myself, pal.

Give me a break.

We've been waddlin' all day.

Go ahead. Follow the crowd.

It'll be quieter when you're gone.

Come on. If he wants to

freeze to death, let him.

I'm up. I'm up.

Rise and shine, everybody.

Huh? Zak? Marshall?

Bertie? Uncle Fungus?

Where is everybody? Come on, guys,

we're gonna miss the migration.

They left without me.

They do this every year.

Why? Doesn't anyone love me?

Isn't there anyone who cares

about Sid the Sloth?

All right, I'll just go by myself.


Wide body, kerb it next time.

Oh, jeez. Yuck.

I can't believe it. Fresh wild greens.

Frank, where did you ever...?

- Go ahead. Dig in.

- A dandelion.

- I thought the frost wiped 'em all out.

- All but one.

It makes me so... I wanna... Yuck.

This has definitely not been my day.

You know what I'm sayin', buddy?

What a mess. You rhinos

have tiny brains. Did you know that?

It's just a fact. No offence. You probably

didn't even know what I'm talkin' about.


A dandelion. Must be

the last one of the season.

- Carl.

- Easy, Frank.

He ruined our salad.

My mistake. That was my mistake. Let me...

No, no, seriously, let me

take care of this. What is this?

Pine cones. Oh, my goodness.

They're my favorite.

Delicious. That's good eating.

But don't let me hog them all up.

Here, you have some.

Tasty, isn't it? Bon apptit.




Just pretend that I'm not here.

Oh, man! I wanted to hit him at full speed.

That's okay, Frank.

We'll have some fun with him.

Don't let them impale me, please.

I wanna live!

Get off me.

Come on, you're makin' a scene.

We'll just take our furry piata and go.

If it's not them today,

it's someone else tomorrow.

Well, I'd rather it not be today. okay?

We'll break your neck

so you don't feel a thing.

Wait a minute. I thought

rhinos were vegetarians.

- An excellent point.

- Shut up.

Who says we're gonna eat him

after we kill him?

I don't like animals that kill for pleasure.

- Save it for a mammal that cares.

- I'm a mammal that cares.

Okay, if either of you make it

across that sinkhole in front of you,

you get the sloth.

That's right, you losers.

You take one step and you're dead!

- You were bluffing, huh?

- Yeah. Yeah, that was a bluff.

Get him!


A dandelion?

Whoo-hoo! We did it! We did...


- You have beautiful eyes.

- Get off my face.

Whoa, we make a great team.

What do you say we head south together?

Great. Jump on my back

and relax the whole way.

- Wow, really?

- No.

Wait, aren't you going south?

The change of seasons, migration instincts.

- Any of this a-ringin' a bell?

- I guess not. Bye.

Okay, then. Thanks for the help.

I can take it from here.

You overgrown weasel.

Wait till we get down there.

That south thing is way overrated.

The heat, the crowds - who needs it?

Isn't this great? You and me,

two bachelors knockin' about in the wild.

No, you just want a bodyguard
