|The Proboscidea (from the Greek προβοσκίς via the Latin proboscis) are a taxonomic order containing one living family, Elephantidae, and several extinct families. Later proboscideans are distinguished by tusks and long, muscular trunks; these features are less developed or absent in early proboscideans.
