General Note

  • Mammoths and mastodons were so abundant that their teeth are the most commonly found fossil mammalian remains in the state. Mastodons were not true elephants and differed from the mammoth in having straighter tusks, higher cusped teeth with fewer ridges than those found in the mammoth and in having all of the cheek teeth in place simulatneously rather than having the next replacement tooth already crowding against the back face of the functional tooth as is evidenced in the mammoth and his living relative the elephant.
  • Used in Fossil Mammals of Florida by Stanley J. Olsen, Special Publication no. 6, Florida Geological Survey, Tallahassee, 1959, p.49.
