Mastodons are members of the extinct genus Mammut of the order Proboscidea and form the family Mammutidae; they resembled, but were distinct from, the woolly mammoth, which belongs to the family Elephantidae. Mastodons were browsers, while Mammoths were grazers.
Mastodons are thought to have first appeared almost four million years ago. They were native to both Eurasia and North America but died out in Eurasia approximately three million years ago. They disappeared from North America about 10,000 years ago, at the same time as most other Pleistocene megafauna.
