DescriptionEditCarcharodontosaurus had a 1.8 metre long skull, currently making it the theropod with the second largest skull, right after its close cousin, Giganotosaurus. It was a carnosaur, related to Allosaurus, Australovenator, and Giganotosaurus. It had a long, thin skull with over fifty 20 cm, blade-like teeth in its powerful jaws. It had somewhat short arms with 3 sharp talons on each hand. It had long, powerful legs, suggesting speed for such a big animal. It could grow 5.2 metres tall and weigh up to 8 tonnes. The shark-toothed lizard also had a long tail designed for balance while moving, and to help even out the weight in its huge head.
PaleobiologyEditCarcharodontosaurus lived in modern-day Africa, alongside Sarcosuchus and Spinosaurus. It hunted large sauropods like Paralititan, and often fought amongst themselves, often for food, territory, or mates, like all theropods did. It also probably fought among other carnivores, like Sarcosuchus or Spinosaurus, for food and territory as well. It had the niche of apex predator in its environment.
Although Carcharodontosaurus never made an appearance in the orignal Walking with Dinosaurs series or any of its specials, it was in the documentary Dinosaur Planet, where it was inaccurately shown to live in South America and eat Saltasaurus and compete with Aucasaurus, however, Carcharodontosaurus' close cousin
