Additionally, mastodon tusks tended to be long with only a slight curve, whereas the massive Mammoth tusks assumed more of a corkscrew curve that twisted in two directions.
Thirty-eight million years ago, Mammoth and American mastodon shared a common ancestor named Paleomastodon.
However, around 24 million years ago, the mastodon family (Mammut) diverged from the family tree and evolved separately from the species that eventually lead to the Elephantidae family (from which stem mammoth and modern-day Asian and African elephants).
