Made from vinyl and sculpted with excruciating attention to detail, this piece is sure to become the highlight of any collection of prehistoric mammals. Sculpted by Sean Cooper.

This resin kit ships dissembled and unpainted. It may require several weeks to complete casting.

A realistic replica modeled after the famous "shovel-tusked" mammal.

The Platybelodon, which translates to "flat tusk", was a highly successful herbivore that thrived during the Miocene. The shovel shaped tusk has led paleontologists to believe that this animal could shovel up soft vegetation from the swampy feeding grounds, although the wear patterns on the teeth suggest it was also capable of crunching through tree branches. Once finished and painted, this model kit becomes one of the finest depictions of the species available.

A typical representative: Platybelodon danovi Borissiak:

Expansion:during the Miocene Epoch, about 15-4 million years ago (Africa, Europe, Asia)

Platybelodon was a genus of large herbivorous mammal related to the elephant (order Proboscidea). It lived during the Miocene Epoch, about 15-4 million years ago, and ranged over Africa, Europe, Asia. Although it thrived during its time, it did not survive past the Miocene.

Platybelodon was previously believed to have fed in the swampy areas of grassy savannas, using its teeth to shovel up aquatic and semi-aquatic vegetation. However, wear patterns on the teeth suggest that it used its lower tusks to strip bark from trees, and may have used the sharp incisors that formed the edge of the "shovel" more like a modern-day scythe, grasping branches with its trunk and rubbing them against the lower teeth to cut it from a tree.

Platybelodon was very similar to Amebelodon, another, closely related gomphothere genus. Due to the shape of the two lower teeth, which are worn by many gomphothere genera (such as Platybelodon, Archaeobelodon, and Amebelodon), they are popularly known as "shovel tuskers."

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the small edition size and the great demand for this item, allocations are expected to occur.
