“I can’t quite express my excitement in the moment when we uncovered the skull,” the student, Harrison Duran, said in his school’s release. “I’ve been obsessed with dinosaurs since I was a kid, so it was a pretty big deal.”

USA Today reported that the dino skull was found in the Hell’s Creek formation, which spans Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming, where dinosaurs roamed anywhere from 100.5 to 23 million years ago.

Duran found the fossil with “experienced excavator” Michael Kjelland, a biology professor at Mayville State University in North Dakota.

There is already discussions about where the find can be exhibited.

“The goal is to use this find as an educational opportunity, not just reserve [it]  in a private collection somewhere so only a handful of people can see her,” Kjelland said.
