Anancus was a genus of elephant-like animals that lived between about
3 million and 1.5 million years ago. It was about 8 feet (2.5 meters)
tall, and had two long tusks
(until many of its close relatives such
as Platybelodon which
had four tusks). It is thought likely that the animal's tusks would have
been used as defensive weapons.
Anancus is believed to have lived in forests, and eating from trees and shrubs,
as well as by digging out tubers and roots. It went extinct when the forests
that it lived in became grasslands.
