Wildlife

 

Much of the wildlife found throughout the world are identical to those found during Earth’s Pleistocene Age, particularly prehistoric mammals. A notable exception is the lack of any (known) horses, with large flightless birds (moas) and brantas (brontotheriums) serving as mounts and pack animals in their stead.

 

Other creatures, such as fish, lizards, amphibians, and insects are found in great numbers.  The more significant creatures are listed below.

"Common Name" is an attempt to provide something easier to say/remember than the creature's actual name, and perhaps the characters might call the beast as well.
