Switzerland. Canton Luzern. Buchrain. The Hydraul Technic AG company is the general importer of the MAMMUT lift, well known for sideboards for commercial vehicles. A Mammut replica stands on the parking lot outside the company' s buildings. Mastodons are any species of extinct mammutid proboscideans in the genus Mammut, distantly related to elephants. Mastodons lived in herds and were predominantly forest dwelling animals that fed on a mixed diet obtained by browsing and grazing with a seasonal preference for browsing, similar to living elephants. Tusks are elongated, continuously growing front teeth, usually but not always in pairs, that protrude well beyond the mouth of certain mammal species. They are elongated incisors in the case of elephants. A construction crane at work on a nearby  construction site. 9.11.2017 © 2017 Didier Ruef
