渐新象是岛上的有一种群居动物。它们小到能被任何捕食者打倒又大到可以提供充足的肉。 要不是渐新象族群的保护和它们逃离捕食者的天性，这种生物一定会被捕食到灭绝的。 渐新象的长牙和象鼻使它尤其适合以地上的植物为食。它可以利用自己的长牙弄松植物，然后用自己又短又粗的象鼻来把植物弄进嘴里。成年渐新象会为幼年渐新象挖掘食物，看一头小象试着用自己的象鼻非常好笑。
Common name: Phiomia
Species: Phiomia ignavus
Time: Late Eocene–Early Oligocene
Phiomia ignavus is another of the Island's generally docile herd animals. They are small enough that almost any predator can bring them down but large enough to provide plenty of meat. Were it not for the protection of the herd and their instinct to run from any predator, these would almost certainly be hunted to extinction. Phiomia's tusks and trunk make it especially suited to scavenging plantlife from the ground. It uses its tusks to dig up loose plantlife, then uses its stubby trunk to scoop the foliage into its mouth. Adult Phiomia often dig up food for their young, and watching a baby Phiomia attempt to use its trunk can be quite amusing.
While it is completely possible to ride a Phiomia around, they are a meager choice. They work very well, however, as pack-mules. If you feed the Phiomia a stimberry, it serves as a laxative in the creature's digestive system. Knowing this, tribal communities often keep a herd of these as livestock to produce mass quantities of fertilizer.
