Mammut americanum American Mastodon

The American mastodon was the large browser of its day, becoming extinct about 11,000 years ago. With a pair of highly crowned teeth in each dentary, leaves and twigs formed much of the mastodon’s diet as it was more adapted to woodland environments than to the treeless plains that were the domain of mammoths. This is an extraordinary large male specimen from the Aucilla river in Florida’s panhandle and measures 3.5 m (11’ 6”) tall at the shoulders.
