Genus: Platybelodon

…an extinct genus of mammals related to elephants that lived in Miocene Africa, Europe, Asia and North America. Like other gomphotheres Platybelodon sported two unusualy shovel-like teeth. Platybelodon probably used these teeth to strip-bark from trees, using its inscisors as a scythe, grasping branches with its trunk and rubbing them agianst its teeth to cut them.

Some say they look weird, but they look pretty amazing to me, can't believe there are creature look like this use to exist.
