Peter DeSève designed a number of animals for the film that never made it to the final cut: eohippus (prehistoric horses), a large horselike animal that Sid would have ridden, a giant squid and a number of prehistoric sharks that would have nearly eaten Granny in the scene in which she takes a bath in the ocean.

Many of the pirates' weapons switch places and hands during the land bridge trap sequence.
Firstly, Gupta, on Gutt's order, gives his dagger to Louis, who leaves it behind when he digs under the ice. When Gupta and Flynn chase Sid and Granny to the ship's underbelly shortly after, he has Gutt's dagger instead, which Gutt dropped at the ship's front when Louis smashed ice on his foot, and Flynn, who previously possessed a skull sword, has Raz's spear, which vanished from her grasp inexplicably after Manny broke free. Then, as Gupta and Flynn flee the ship's underbelly, then leave their weapons behind.
As we cut back to the ship's topside, Raz has her spear back. Gutt is initially weaponless, but has his dagger back at the pirates corner Manny, Diego, Shira, Crash and Eddie. Gutt also has his original dagger back, and Flynn has his skull sword back. Then, in the shot where Precious blasts Gupta, Razz and Flynn, Gupta, Flynn and Gutt are all unarmed, while Raz's spear in knocked overboard with her.
When Peaches cuts Ellie free shortly after, she does so with Gupta's dagger, tossing it away from the ship's front after. Finally, when the floe Manny and Gutt are on is raised by the seabed rock, the floe is initially weaponless, but gains Raz's spear, Gupta's dagger, Flynn's skull sword, and another sword knocked from Raz's punch earlier, all of which were in different locations. All four weapons are either lost overboard or broken during Manny and Gutt's fight. See more »
[upon hearing an earthquake]
What, what was that? Ellie, did you hear that?
I heard it, Manny; whatever it is, it's miles away.
Peaches, you all right? Where is she, no teenager is ever up early.

During the first half of the closing credits, the characters get together and sing "We are Family". However, Sid's granny sings by accident "ham and cheese". As each character sings, footage of their voice actor in the recording booth can be seen. See more »
Attended a packed preview screening yesterday (the film opens here next Thursday)with my wife and 6 year old daughter and must say that if you liked the previous Ice Ages then this one will not disappoint. Kids loved it and plenty there for the adults to relate to and enjoy as well. Animation quality(in 2D)was top notch and story line was good and with plenty of humour and action a plenty. A few of the subplots were educational as well as exploring the values of friendship,loyalty and the like which is probably standard fare for these types of films. As a 47 year old bloke I enjoyed it and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone but especially for the target audience of young families you can't go wrong.
