How to use "Mastodons" in context?
Mastodons were huge creatures that grew to be over 30 feet long and 10 feet tall. They were herbivorous and appeared in the Late Cretaceous period. Mastodons were popular creatures to hunt and many people believe that they were the largest animals to ever live on land. There is some debate as to whether mastodons were ever intelligent, but regardless, they were a formidable foe. Mastodons went extinct about 10,000 years ago and their extinction is largely attributed to the arrival of humans.
