Product Details

*Voted best prehistoric animal toy figure of 2018 by Prehistoric Time Magazine* Though similar in appearance to the woolly mammoth, the American mastodon 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. History: Though the genus name “Mastodon� is no longer used in this creature’s scientific name, it’s still the most frequently used informal common name for these giant elephant-like animals. The currently accepted genus is Mammut. Mastodons (or mammutids) were not as large as most mammoths or even modern day elephants, and were not as widespread. Scientific Name: Mammut americanum Characteristics: Like mammoths, the American mastodon features small ears, a trunk like an elephant, and two long curving tusks. While still covered with a coat of fur unlike modern elephants, this skillfully painted and highly detailed American Mastodon toy features sculpted fur that's shorter than the woolly mammoth’s. Size:  Our American Mastodon toy measures 8 inches long and 4 ½ inches tall to the tip of its raised trunk. The American Mastodon is part of the Wild Safari® Prehistoric World collection. All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
