The Modern Mastodon

In Aspen Colorado a huge amount of fossils were found when a construction team was digging. One of the major animals from the ice age they found was the Mastodon. I decided to dig a little deeper and found out what the modern Mastodon is.
The Mastodon was not the first evolution in fact it was the third. Before the Palaeomastodon was the Moeritheruim and then the Deinotherium. These two ancestors are the oldest in their family. After the Palaeomastodon comes seven more! Right after the Mastodon is the Mammut which some people get confused with the Mammoth but they are two different species. After the Mammut is the Platybelodon this Mastodon evolution is bigger in build and looks more like modern Elephants. Soon the Platybelodon evolved into the Gomphotherium and Stegodon.
The Mastodon
the Stegodon came a surprise, the African and Asian Elephants started to evolve just before the Mammoth evolved! Although the Mammoth died in the ice age the modern Elephant was evolving and must have better adapted to survive because they lived longer and still live today. What will be the next evolution, the ModernMastodon?
