[ Perhaps it uses the tusk array to scrape, carry, spear, unearth or somehow otherwise procure food... ]
[ ...Maybe the primary use of these extensions is to challenge a rival or impress a mate... ]
[ ...It could be that there are defensive reasons for the transition, or it might just be totally unfathomable why in the world this animals teeth have diverged from their original purpose in such a crazy way. ]
[ Beyond that, it will be possibly now be relying on some other means to masticate. ]

NickyBeats- oh man, nightmare fuel. I imagine that it digests its prey like a venus fly trap, ie a slow, terrible death.
benjemin- I totally dig those colors, but that guy is a moron for going in there!

Rob Powell - no prob dude! just spreadin the love around for all to enjoy!
silentbrain - haha thanks man! exactly what i was thinking as well!! -oh and i love yours too haha great expression!
i cant stop going back to this thing.... i should just leave it alone or it might consume me....
Sort of a rhino/elephant/bison...thing...
The idea is that a creature would be bred for its incredible ability to provide for precious ivory. So like elephants, this critter gets its tusks removed here and there.
Here's my sketch a day. took me a few hours to make this since this is the first time im trying to paint directly on the computer (i usually sketch with pencils first then scan them then paint on the computer keeping the grain and texture).
Decided to go for a 'cute' approach.
Well here is my quickie

Btw... Hi folks
A quicky done tuskmonster, somewhat inspired by Triceratops.
