Catlinite Sculpture of a Mastodon
The Mastodon once roamed much of North America and
Eurasia.  They became extinct about 30 000 years ago;
perhaps due to climate change and/or over-hunting by
prehistoric man.  They were a little smaller than the
Mammoth; about the size of an elephant.  Their tusks
gained curvature with age, but, were always much straiter
than a Mammoth's.
