Carcharodontosaurus is a genus of frightful carnivorous dinosaurs that existed in the mid-Cretaceous Period, between 100 and 93 million years ago. It is named after the shark genus Carcharodon (Ancient Greek "carcharo" = sharp, "odonto" = teeth, and "sauros" = lizard).

Carcharodontosaurus is one of the longest and heaviest known carnivorous dinosaurs, its length ranging at 12-13 m, height at 4 m, and weight from 5 to 15 tons. It is similar in shape to another horrific dinosaur, Tyrannousaurus Rex. It had a two-meter-long skull, with enormous jaws and serrated, saw-like teeth, up to 20 cm long. It had practically no neck, and its head was planted on a gigantic squatty trunk with an extended, mighty tail.

This prehistoric animal was bipedal, moving on its massive hind legs, whereas its forelimbs were considerably thinner and shorter.
Its fossilized remains have been discovered in Algeria and Morocco, in Northern Africa.
