Mastodons were prehistoric mammals that lived during the Pleistocene epoch, around 2.6 million to 11,700 years ago. They were related to modern-day elephants and were similar in appearance, with long, curved tusks and a trunk. However, mastodons had a stockier build and shorter legs than modern elephants.

 

Mastodons were herbivores and likely roamed across the grasslands and forests of North America, feeding on vegetation such as leaves, twigs, and bark. They were also important prey animals for early humans and other predators such as saber-toothed cats and American lions.

 

Today, mastodons are extinct, and their fossils provide valuable insights into the natural history of our planet. These fossils have been found in various parts of the world, including North America, Europe, and Asia, and continue to be studied by scientists to learn more about the biology and behavior of these fascinating animals.
