Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Platybelodon
Every one in a while you find an animal that you just can't believe actually existed, but is so delightfully awkward you are just excited they did. The platybelodon is just one of those animals. Rarely does an animal I am unfamiliar with just jump out of my pencil like this one. I love it.
The platybelodon, meaning flat-spear tusk, lived during the late Miocene Epoch in Asia. They are related to the elephant.
