Safari Ltd Wild Safari Dinosaur and Prehistoric Life Ambelodon Toy FigurineAmebelodon is a striking relative of modern elephants with shovel-like tusks protruding from its lower jaw. This large plant eater occupied North America during the Micoene, between six and ten million years ago. Amebelodon was a plant eater with a huge skull with two pairs of tusks – a pair of elephant-like tusks in its upper jaw, and a pair of flattened shovel-like tusks in its lower jaw. It walked on four sturdy legs and had a short tail. At up to 3m long it was relatively small. This figure is 17cm long and 8.3cm high. It has grey elephant-like skin. Amebelodon was named in 1927. Its name means ‘shovel tooth’ in reference to the huge pair of flat teeth – or tusks – that protrude from its lower jaw. These shovel-like tusks may have helped Amebelodon to scoop up aquatic vegetation, uproot plants, or strip bark from trees. It probably had a short trunk to pull food into its mouth. Amebelodon is a gomphothere – a group of odd mastodonts with four pairs of tusks. Gomphotheres spread across much of the globe during the Miocene, about 10 million years ago. There are two valid species of Amebelodon. A. floridanus was smaller and lived 8-9 million years ago, while A. fricki was larger and lived more recently. Several other species previously referred to Amebelodon were recently renamed.Dimensions: 16.5 x 8.1 x 3 centimetres (0.09 kg)------------------------------------ 当店は、アメリカ カリフォルニアを本店とする海外ショップです。
