NORTH DAKOTA (WTVO/CNN) — A college student from UC Merced college made the discovery of a lifetime during his recent paleontology dig.
Harrison Duran uncovered a 65 million-year-old Triceratops skull in North Dakota last month, ABC7 reported.
The skull was said to be found upside down with the base of its left horn partially exposed.
The dinosaur skull has been named “Alice” after the landowner, ABC7 reported.
Duran said his interest in dinosaurs dates back to his early childhood, and he hopes this fossil will be an educational tool for others.
