American mastodon (scientific name Mammut

North America from at least 3.75 million to 10,000 years ago.
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.

Fossil GOMPHOTHERIUM TOOTH
elephant species with 4 tusks),
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.
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
