BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History has expanded its fossil collection.

They unveiled a full size cast of a triceratops skull.

It's one of the most well-known, and easily recognized dinosaurs.

The museum says this display will give museum goers a real, up close look at the fossil.

"We're not a digital experience. You can actually walk up to something. It's real, it's life sized and I think that's very important," said museum director Deborah Cowman.

Triceratops have only been found in parts of the United States and Canada.

The Museum's specimen is cast from a skull found in the Hell Creek Formation in Montana.

If you'd like to see it, the museum is open Monday through Saturday.
