More Information

Carcharodontosaurus was one of the largest theropod dinosaurs to ever roam the earth, with its average size being larger than that of Tyrannosaurus-rex. Carcharodontosaurus (named after the shark, genus Carcharodon) was a carnivorous dinosaur that was most likely a pack hunter, similar to their distant relative Allosaurus. Carcharodontosaurus was indeed enormous, weighing 6 to 15 tons and measuring up to 45 feet in length. The large serrated teeth of this beast could grow up to 8 inches in length. The original fossil of Carcharodontosaurus was destroyed during the second world war due to allied bombing missions. However, in 1995, a skull was discovered in Morocco, Africa.
