At just 12 years old, Nathan Hrushkin went through an experience that many will not have in his life: he found a 69 million year old dinosaur fossil.

He was walking in a park in the province of Alberta, Canada, when he saw bones next to a rock. This happened in July, and on Thursday (10/15) the complete excavation of the fossils was completed.

The boy says that when he saw the material for the first time, he was “literally speechless”.

“I didn’t even get excited, despite knowing that I should have been,” he told the BBC.
