Mastodons



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Mammalia
  Order Proboscidea
  Family Mammutidae
  Genus Mammut
Mastodons were a genus of animals, related to elephants and Mammoths, that lived from about 4 million years ago through to almost 6,000 years ago. Although they outwardly resembled Mammoths, Mastodons were in fact distinct from them - Mastodons were browsing herbivores (principally eating leaves from trees and shrubs) whereas Mammathos were grazers (eating grasses).

Masotodons inhabited a vast area in Europe, Asia and North America. Their fossils have been in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, and as far South as Greece and Honduras.

Mastodons were around 10 feet (3 meters) tall at the shoulder, and equipped with long horizontal tusks, which could be as long as 16 feet (5 meters). The tusks are believed to have been used for breaking branches and twigs when feeding, and, by males, in competitions for mates. Differences between Mastodons and Mammoths, include a thinner woolly coat, different shaped teeth, and nearly horizontal tusks (whereas Mammoth tusks tended to be more curved).
