Did you know that a Mammoth was found near the construction site of the 101 Freeway near Ventu Park Road? We have those exciting bones, that demonstrate even the teeth of the Mammoth Elephant were mammoth!! Come see the incredible evidence of the deep past in our Anderson Hall Mammoth exhibit. Later this year, we will be hosting the companion exhibit "Fossils of the Conejo Valley" which reveals the exciting evidence of snakes, snails and other creatures from our region's past.
Jungleland started as a small six lion farm.
Eventually occupying 170 acres, Thousand Oaks residents would come to enjoy the distant evening roars of lions waiting for their dinner.
The Stagecoach Inn Museum pays tribute to Jungleland with donated and loaned artifacts.
