American mastodon (scientific name Mammut americanum) and all its sub-species, including the Cuvieronius sp., roamed North America from at least 3.75 million to 10,000 years ago. 

Mastodons, along with mammoths and modern elephants, are members of the order Proboscidea. As adults they stood 8-10 feet at the shoulder and weighed between 4-6 tons. Their teeth had blunt cones. Mastodons used these teeth to browse on herbs, shrubs, and trees.

(extinct elephant species with 4 tusks)

tooth found in South Carolina, 4-5 million years old

Gomphotherium (pronunciation: gom-fo-THEER-ee-um) ("Welded Beast") is an extinct genus of proboscid, which lived during the Early Miocene & Pliocene Eras of Europe (France, Germany, Austria), North America (Kansas), Asia (Pakistan) and Africa (Kenya).

The10 ft tall creature, also known as Trilophodon or Tetrabelodon, resembled a modern elephant but had FOUR tusks instead of two: two on the upper jaw and two on the elongated lower jaw. The lower ones are parallel and shaped like a shovel and were probably used as such. 

Unlike modern elephants, the upper tusks were covered by a layer of enamel. Compared to elephants, the skull was more elongated and low. These animals probably lived in swamps or near lakes, using their tusks to dig or scrape up aquatic vegetation. 

In comparison to earlier proboscids, Gomphotherium had far fewer molars; the remaining ones had high ridges to expand their grinding surface. A complete skeleton of Gomphotherium has been found a Muhldorf, Germany, in 1971
