A dinosaur skull found in Alberta's Foothills is now being displayed at the Royal Tyrrell Museum.

The triceratops skull, named "Calli" was found along Callum Creek, which is a tributary of the Oldman River, in 2014.

According to a release from the museum, it was discovered during flood mitigation paleontology work after the floods of 2013.

Only the skull was found, and it had to be extracted in blocks with a helicopter used to transport it.

The skull measures six feet in length from the beak to the top of the frill, and over five feet wide.

Despite the size, the triceratops was not fully mature.

It's estimated to have lived between 69 and 68 million years ago.

Preparation Technician Ian Macdonald spent seven years preparing the skull, which is now mounted on a custom-made armature made by two Strathmore-based blacksmiths.
