Crane operator Brandon Valasik was excavating at the eastern end of the site, between Minna and Natoma streets at First Street, when he came across the giant tooth. Experts confirmed that the tooth came from a Columbian Mammoth -- a relative of the modern-day elephant that lived in the Bay Area during the Pleistocene epoch.
The tooth is believed to be between 8,000 and 150,000 years old, coming from a beast that was about 12 to 14 feet tall and weighed as much as 10 tons.
The tooth will be on display at 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends at the museum, located at 55 Music Concourse Dr. So go check it out.
