is a carnivorous
carcharodontosaurid dinosaur that walked our earth between
100 & 93 million years ago, during the mid-Cretaceous. It is
currently known to include two gigantic species, which were
among the largest known predatory dinosaurs, as large as
dinosaurs of the era, Tyrannosaurus and Gigantosaurus, but
not as large as Spinosaurus.
Carcharodontosaurus is named after the shark Carcharodon
(from the Greek karcharo
meaning "jagged" or "sharp" and odonto meaning
"teeth", and sauros, meaning "lizard" —
"jagged-toothed lizard" or "sharp-toothed lizard". These
particular teeth were found in Morocco, North Africa.
