To this in the fossil world are added two more genera—the Mastodon and dinotherium.
They are simple bilophodont molars, very like those of dinotherium.
The dinotherium appears to have been organised to satisfy the same tastes.
Were this to be developed into a tusk, the jaw would present a curious resemblance to that of dinotherium.
The skull of dinotherium is lower than that of Elephas or Mastodon.
dinotherium is a member of the group Proboscidea, of the line of descent of the elephants.
A man sat on a rock and soughtRefreshment from his thumb; A dinotherium wandered byAnd scared him some.
A remarkable instance of the need of caution is furnished by the history of the dinotherium itself.
In dinotherium they are bilophodont or else are marked by three straight transverse ridges.
The dinotherium (Fig. 159), one of the most remarkable of these animals, is the largest terrestrial Mammal which has ever lived.
