Gompothere tooth

Description: A Gompothere is an ancient relative of modern day elephants. These animals differ from other proboscideans, animals with trunks, primarily by the shape of their teeth and the fact that they had four tusks instead of two. They are thought to have consumed bushes, small trees and other vegetation.
