Oregon State University’s Reser Stadium may be home to the Beavers today, but thousands of years ago it was home to a mammoth.

The massive femur and several other bones from a mammoth were found on Monday in the stadium’s north end zone during an off-season renovation, the university said in a news release.

The mammoth is believed to have died roughly 10,000 years ago, when the site may have been a bog or marsh.
