Carcharodontosaurus is a genus of carnivorous Dinosaur that existed between 112 and 93.5 million years ago, during the early Albian to early Turonian stages of the mid-Cretaceous Period. 


First identified in the 1920s in Algeria, Aficra, though it wasn’t until the 1990s that larger specimens were found. 


  

Carcharodontosaurus was one of the longest and heaviest carnivores that lived, being slightly larger than Tyrannosaurs rex and possibly larger than Giganotoaurus and Spinosaurs, the latter which is also found in the same part of the world as Carcharodontosaurus.


The name Carcharodontosaurs means ‘ragged tooth lizard’
