Mastodons



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Mammalia
  Order Proboscidea
  Family Mammutidae
  Genus Mammut
Mastodons were a genus of animals, related to elephants and Mammoths, that lived from about 4 million years ago through to almost 6,000 years ago. Although they outwardly resembled Mammoths, Mastodons were in fact distinct from them - Mastodons were browsing herbivores (principally eating leaves from trees and shrubs) whereas Mammathos were grazers (eating grasses).

Masotodons inhabited a vast area in Europe, Asia and North America. Their fossils have been in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, and as far South as Greece and Honduras.

Mastodons were around 10 feet (3 meters) tall at the shoulder, and equipped with long horizontal tusks, which could be as long as 16 feet (5 meters). The tusks are believed to have been used for breaking branches and twigs when feeding, and, by males, in competitions for mates. Differences between Mastodons and Mammoths, include a thinner woolly coat, different shaped teeth, and nearly horizontal tusks (whereas Mammoth tusks tended to be more curved).

Product Description:

A vivid, authoritative exploration of the iconic giants of the Ice Age.

Featuring stunning photographs of skeletons, casts, tusks and preserved flesh from the world-famous collections of the Natural History Museum in London and Chicago's Field Museum (home to the most complete and best preserved mammoth baby), this book reveals what life was like for these prehistoric giants whose remains invite so much modern fascination and speculation.

From 1.8 million to 10,000 years ago as global temperatures cooled, colossal mammals were an imposing presence on the Pleistocene landscape, roaming alongside humans across great swaths of Europe, Asia, and much of North America. Mammoths and Mastodons of the Ice Age explains the differences between these animals, describes their habitats and behaviors, and introduces other amazing creatures from the Ice Age, such as the saber-toothed cat, giant sloth, cave bear and dire wolf.

Drawing on current scientific research, including recently revealed DNA analysis that shows the real color of mammoths, Adrian Lister explores how hunters stalked the elephantine prey, why they died out and whether it's possible to clone them today. He also examines what wild elephants (their surviving cousins) tell us about their extinct ancestors and how the natural and human-caused challenges elephants face today may doom them to the same fate.

Mammoths and Mastodons of the Ice Age is a tie-in with the traveling museum exhibition "Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age," which opened in Chicago in 2010, and will tour through 2016. The similarly named 3D film has received rave reviews and undoubtedly will become a popular big-screen event, once the museum exhibition closes.

Product Description:
Mammoths and mastodons roamed the earth for more than a million years, and then suddenly went extinct. What was everyday life like for these colossal cousins of the modern elephant? What did they eat? How did they fit into their Ice Age landscape? Why did they disappear?

These questions and more are answered in this fascinating book that presents the latest research, drawing on the recent discovery of a fully frozen baby mammoth—which has allowed scientists to learn more than they ever could have known just from studying bones and fossils.

Profusely illustrated, Mammoths and Mastodons features photographs of archaeological digs, scientists at work in the field and in labs, and archival relics. Specially commissioned artwork also brings the story of mammoths and mastodons to life. The book includes a bibliography, a glossary, and an index.

Product Description:
In a time some 25,000 years ago, a small tribe located in a primal valley attempts to survive the many threats from the catastrophes of geological upheavals, where survival is wrested from the elements and life is to endure starvation. The perspective of this sweeping adventure is told from that of a young boy. The hard-learned lessons of life provide a romance of epic proportions in which `The Boy' fights for love and acceptance, while overcoming seemingly insurmountable tribal beliefs. Terrifying and beautiful, in a world full of cataclysmic change, prehistoric man and animals learn to accept and trust one another. Through these trials `The Boy' develops a sense of reason and respect for others which is founded on friendship and trust, rather than fear. At the turning of the last Ice Age, old tribal beliefs and customs are shorn from their fabric as homo sapiens evolve from the last vestiges of primitive man. The first novel of the five-novel series establishes a benchmark for tracing the beginnings of the meteoric rise of the homo sapiens species from their lowly beginnings to their eventual dominance over the planet.

Product Description:
In a super strong patriarchal society of one clan in southern California 130,000 years ago, a girl twin is born before her brother twin, and as a stroke of luck, she is not left to die, as would have been the case for a second-born girl. The girl, Elka, grows to be strong, fearless, and spiritual, things that didn't fit well in the culture into which she meets life, a culture where each man rules over his family without limits on his authority. One man, her grandfather, Geol, rules the clan. The clan's culture sees birth as perfection of person and every infraction of the clan rules as a loss of integrity, a brokenness. Lose a certain, unspecified, amount of integrity, and one is exiled from the clan forever, as there is no remedy for loss of too much integrity. s her father sinks deeper into power-driven attempts to kill the strong spirit within Elka, a spirit he fears, a possible escape plan opens up for Elka. Will the plan save her? Or, will she be victimized as one member of the clan already is, to become to the extreme of their belief, a slave to every unreasonable whim of her husband for the rest of her life? Elka opts for escape, agonizing at separation from her twin and others she loves in the clan. Will she make it? Will she survive the separation? Will she find a place where she can thrive in the huge land that surrounds her? Read to discover the answers.
