Carson City, NV, USALive Auction
Description: A Rare Exquisite Indonesian Mastodon Bone Carving Of An Elderly Scholar Or Priest. Estimated as Prehistoric Mastodons are extinct distant relatives to elephants, that inhabited North and Central America during the late Miocene or late Pliocene era. They became extinct 10,000 to 11,000 years ago. Mastodons lived in herds and were predominantly forest dwelling animals that fed on a mixed diet obtained by browsing and grazing with a seasonal preference for browsing, similar to living elephants. They disappeared from North America as part of a mass extinction of most of the Pleistocene megafauna, widely presumed to have been related to overexploitation by Clovis hunters, and possibly also to climate change.
