The species of ancient proboscidea with the scientific name Deinotherium giganteum (Proboscidea, Deinotheriidae) inhabited the territory of today’s Europe during the Middle and Late Miocene (16,000,000 to 5,000,000 years ago). Unlike today’s elephants, in which the tusks grow from the upper jaw, the tusks of the dinoterium grew from the lower jaw and were curved downwards. The remains of a dynoteria were discovered at another site near Kraljevo (the village of Ravanica).
