Carcharodontosaurus was a carnivore. It lived in the Cretaceous period and inhabited Africa. Its fossils have been found in places such as Tataouine (Tunisia), Daraa-Tafilalet درعة تافيلالت (Morocco) and Adrar (Algeria).

This enormous “shark-toothed” Cretaceous predator first turned up in Egypt some 90 years ago. But since then, more specimens have come to light in Morocco and Niger. There's a whole family of these theropods, who are actually slightly bigger than T. Rex. Close relatives include such gangsters as the Argentinian Giganotosaurus and the “fishing” dinosaur of Egypt, Spinosaurus.
