Ideas on Tap: Rodents of Unusual Size in the Fossil Record of Oregon

Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Virtual Event

Quench your thirst for knowledge at Ideas on Tap, the Museum of Natural and Cultural History's monthly pub talk—now served virtually on Zoom and Facebook. 

A giant, bear-sized beaver roamed eastern North America during the Pleistocene. But, until recently, giant beaver fossils had never been found in The Beaver State. Join paleontologist Samantha Hopkins for a discussion of new fossils that show Oregon, too, had its own rodent of unusual size 20,000 years ago.
