It’s well known that dinosaurs and synapsids could get pretty weird-looking, but we all need to remember that mammals can be pretty funky looking as well. As a kid, Platybelodon was always a favourite of mine. Those bizarre tusks and teeth always captured my imagination. As one can easily deduct, Platybelodon is related to modern Elephants (Proboscidea). They grazed throughout Asia throughout the Miocene epoch but fossils of similar beasts have been found throughout the world. If you’ve ever seen an elephant you can imagine the outlandish presence that Platybelodon must have had! #inkdrawing #penandink #platybelodon #miocene #mammal #prehistoricmammals #proboscidea #shoveltusker

The menacing thrum of a bass guitar echoes through the empty streets, drawing closer with each passing moment. He lurches from the shadows, bladed bass guitar "axe" in his mis-matched claws... HodgePodge. When LaBrea was born from the suffocating muck of the tar pits, she did not rise alone. HodgePodge is LaBrea's devoted manservant, a lurching asymmetrical bogeyman frankensteined together from the leavings of the pit. He carries a massive bladed bass guitar, his "Axe," capable of cleaving through anything short of Kyle's DynoPower-enhanced armor. #DynoGuard #FossilGhoul #frankenstein #monster #characterdesign #creaturedesign #digitalart #dinosaur #anthroanimal #furry #scalie #illustration #scifi #toyetic #80saesthetic #animationdesign #shoveltusker #megatherium #Platybelodon #iceage #prehistoricmammal

Platybelodon var ett däggdjur i elefantsläktet. Den kunde bli upp till 3 meter lång och väga lika mycket som en mindre bil. Namnet Platybelodon betyder flat-tusk. Platybelodon levde för omkring 15 miljoner år sedan. . . . #Platybelodon #3 #meter #lång #levde #för #15 #miljoner #år #sedan #jurassicworld #jurassicpark

Platybelodon . A very interesting prehistoric elephant species mainly for its bizarre lower jaw and shove like teeth. Surprisingly enough, Platybelodon was just abit smaller than the modern elephant. Also...I don't know what this dude's eating but I want to try some.... . #digitalart #paleontology #paleoart #platybelodon #pacyderm #elephant #420 #marijuana

#Inktober Day 23 . Platybelodon was related to the modern elephant 15 million years ago. It was nicknamed "shove-tusker" because of it's extended lower jaw. The might have been used for digging or stripping bark from trees.

#inktober Platybelodon Scientific name: Platybelodon Loomisi "Platybelodon ("flat-spear tusk") was a genus of large herbivorous mammals related to the elephant (order Proboscidea). It lived during the late Miocene Epoch in Asia and the Caucasus. Platybelodon was very similar to Amebelodon, another closely related gomphothere genus. Due to the shape of the two lower teeth, like many gomphothere genera (such as Platybelodon, Archaeobelodon, Konobelodon, and Amebelodon) they are popularly known as "shovel tuskers." Platybelodon was previously believed to have fed in the swampy areas of grassy savannas, using its teeth to shovel up aquatic and semi-aquatic vegetation. However, wear patterns on the teeth suggest that it used its lower tusks to strip bark from trees, and may have used the sharp incisorsthat formed the edge of the "shovel" more like a modern-day scythe, grasping branches with its trunk and rubbing them against the lower teeth to cut it from a tree. Adult animals in particular might have eaten coarser vegetation more frequently than juveniles ".

This tooth belonged to a bizarre elephant-like beast called Platybelodon. Although distantly related to elephants, this Miocene aged amebelodontid had giant shovel-like incisors protruding out of its jaw. These giant beasts may have used this strange device to uproot vegetation along swamps, which is thought to be their primary source of nutritional income. 🐘 • • • #fossils #rocks #paleontology #geology #paleobiology #biology #science #zoology #elephant #elephanttooth #fossilelephant #mammoth #gompotheridae #amebelodon #platybelodon #miocene #prehistory #extinct #naturalhistory #ancientlife #tooth #curiosities #collection #prehistoric #museum #evolution #instapic #archaeology

7. Platybelodon Unlike the Amebelodon, the Platybelodon had flatter tusks while the Amebelodon’s tusks were shovel like. #jurassicpark #jurassicworld #jurassicworldthegame #paleontology #prehistoric #extinct #dinosaur #dinosaurs #prehistoricanimal #prehistoricanimals #seareptile #seareptiles #platybelodon
