Carcharodontosaurus 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.

The genus 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.
