American Mastodon - Wild Safari

-Size: 8"L x 4&1/2"H

Though similar in appearance to the woolly mammoth, the American mastodon (Mammut americanum) is not closely related. The mastodons split from the other members of the order Proboscidea around 25 million years ago. The most well-known of these beasts was the American mastodon, which was the last of the group to go extinct about 11,000 years ago.
