Tusk, tusk

How cool is it that they just discovered the remains of a mastodon here in San Diego County?

Almost as cool as the fact that this animals name derives from Greek words that mean "nipple-tooth." (And yes, "mastodon" a linguistic relative of all those breast-related words that start with "mast-," and to tooth-related words like "orthodontist.")
