|Q:||Ask a Question about Giant elephants|
It had huge, downward-curving tusks in the lower jaw, which it probably used to dig up roots to eat. Other forms had tusks in both upper and lower jaws, and the hoe-tuskers had tusks in the lower jaw that were flattened into a shovel like shape.
Mammoths were very like modern elephants in shape. They survived in cool climates, spreading throughout Europe, Asia and North America.
The closest surviving relative of the elephant is the hyrax, a small and agile African animal that looks more like a rodent than its huge modern relative.
