Role in the movies Edit

In Scrat's Continental Crack-up Part 2Edit

In Ice Age: Continental Drift Edit

Lightning fast on her feet and equally quick-witted, this beautiful saber tooth pirate has become Gutt's loyal first mate. After Diego a rogue saber capsize Gutt’s ship, Shira gets separated from the pirates and is shocked to discover that Gutt has no real loyalty to her. When Diego appeals to her join his motley crew, she has to make the decision to stick with Gutt or to join Diego, she chooses Diego.

Ice Age: Collision Course Edit


Ironic and sarcastic, Shira was loyal to those that helped her: Gutt had once made her his first mate, a position which, despite Gutt's indifference at her loss, she held close. Shira was not easily swayed in her resolve and could often be quick to anger when she dealt with those that caused her trouble. Despite her anger, Shira did fall in love with Diego, who introduced her to a better way of life than piracy: being part of a herd.


  • The name Shira means "song" and/or "singing" in Hebrew.
