N 14th St, Lincoln, NE, US

“Mammoths roamed Nebraska’s grassland for more than one million years before mysteriously disappearing between 11,000 and 10,000 years ago. these extinct relatives of today’s elephants were the largest mammal’s ever to walk the great plains. Adult males stood more than 13 feet tall at the shoulder and had a weight of over 24,000 pounds. Mammoth bones and teeth have been found in ice age deposits in all but three of Nebraska’s 93 counties. Bones and tusks were uncovered just 100 yards east of where you are now standing. This sculpture was completed by Fred J. Hoppe in 1998” (lamp post nearest back right foot)

Perfect place for a mammoth tag, and the BIG guy was wearing Husker Red. This was a really good find. Thanks for hiding one here.
