Wether these beasts of burden used by Sauron were a foul breed, Mûmakil, or a race of unknown animals from the distant South, is impossible to say for certain as we lack a more detailed description.
Portrayal in Adaptations
- The great beasts are depicted as rhinoceros-like creatures.
- In this video game the basic design of the great beasts from Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings is kept. However, a new idea is introduced: the creatures called "great beasts" were originally used by Dwarves in the Misty Mountains as underground draft animals (depicted as being much smaller than Sauron's beasts of burden). The Dwarves called them "yurgs".
