(CNN) – A college student made the discovery of a lifetime in the Badlands of North Dakota.

Harrison Duran teamed up with Professor Michael Kjelland on a paleontology dig and discovered a triceratops skull.

Experts said the bones date back to the late Cretaceous Period – about 65 million years ago.

The duo is not sharing the exact location of the dig sites but they believe more bones will be found there.

Harrison and Kjelland named the dinosaur Alice after the landowner.

They said they plan to conduct more research on Alice and prepare the dinosaur for display.
