In Scrat's Continental Crack-up Part 2

Later, she is seen watching and laughing while Squint is throwing star fish at Scrat.

In Ice Age: Continental Drift

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 pursue a better life.


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 trials and tribulations, she was introduced to a better way of life than piracy: being part of a herd.
