This college student just made a massive discovery.

Harrison Duran, a 23-year-old student at the University of California at Merced, dug up a gigantic fossil of a Triceratops skull. It's 65 million years old.

Duran told Inside Edition he was in "awe" when he discovered the fossil in North Carolina, calling it a "very surreal experience." Video of him on the dig shows him sweeping dirt with a small brush.

Finding the fossil is a dream come true for Duran, who has loved dinosaurs since he was a kid. And today, his phone ringtone is the T. rex roar from "Jurassic Park."

Duran said he hopes the fossil will go on display for everyone to see.
