Name Macawnivore (Felinus-kaleido mega-cranium)
Type Mammal
Diet Carnivore
Behavior Hostile/Tamable

Macawnivores are large tiger-like Machairodont predators with colorful fur and a fierce disposition.


Macawnivores have colorful fur matching the plumage of a blue and gold macaw, a pair of large tusks/canines poking out of the mouth, and a rather large head compared to the rest of the body. Unlike most Machairodonts, the Macawnivore has a longer tail, which is common in modern day cats such as tigers, leopards and lions.

In the Movie

For most of the story, a Macawnivore named Chunky is a predator and threat to the Croods (mostly towards Grug for he hit him a few times with his stilts). But when he finds himself alone in the dark with Grug, he nuzzles up to him for comfort out of fear of the darkness and being alone.

Working together, Grug and the Macawnivore create a lift that is held up by the Piranhakeet flock and (while picking up a few extra passengers) they make it to the other side, reuniting with the rest of the Croods.

The Macawnivore, along with the other animals Grug rescued, are accepted into the family, Chunky happily nuzzling Grug as it "turns out he's a cat person".


Strength: Macawnivores are proven to be very strong, seeing as Chucky was able to grab the boulder that was thrown by Grug easily, he also shown to be able to pull out Grug with Guy out of the tarpit easily without any struggle.

Speed and Agility: Macawnivores have proven to be faster than the Bear Owl and able to make quick turns.

Stamina: Is very high as they are able to run very far and barely show any sign of being tired.

Intelligence: Shown to be smart enough to blow on the torch to make sure it stays light, as they (at least one Macawnivore in particular) fear the dark.

Hunting: Shows to be quite a very good ambush predator as the coloring of its fur is able to camouflage in the tall bushes easily.
