TULSA, Oklahoma -

A private U.S. collector bought fossilized remains of "Big John", the world's largest triceratops dinosaur ever discovered.

The dinosaur was sold for nearly $8 million at a Paris auction on Thursday.

"Big John" roamed modern-day South Dakota more than 66 million years ago.

The first pieces of "Big John" were first unearthed in 2014.
