phylum Chordata The Mammutidae are a family of extinct proboscideans that lived between the Miocene and the Pleistocene or Holocene. Mammutidae classify taxa known by the common name mastodon, a name also used by Georges Cuvier for the genus Mastodon.

The American mastodon is the most recent and best-known species of the genus. They disappeared from North America as part of a mass extinction of most of the Pleistocene megafauna. For more information, please visit the Wikipedia Entry
