Gomphotheres in GURPS

Gomphotheres were elephant-like beasts with four tusks - two in the usual place expected of elephants and two in the lower jaw. They lived in Eurasia and North America during the Miocene and Pliocene. In the late Pliocene they migrated to South America after the Isthmus of Panama connected the two Americas. South American gomphotheres lived on until the end of the last ice age.
