    Description

    The family Proboscidae, a name invented by German naturalist Carl Illiger in 1811 (pro = forward, boskein = mouth), really comes clearly into focus in the Miocene period (24 million years ago). Over this period, doubtless due to climatic and vegetation changes, they changed, mainly in becoming bigger, some species reaching over 4 metres in height. Deinotherium giganteum would have dwarfed a modern elephant, and had powerful down-curving tusks, possibly used for digging. The family Elephantidae was established by J. E. Gray in 1821. This family, evolving during the late Miocene period, was extraordinarily diverse, including some 22 of the 39 or so known genera.
