Description

Dinosaurs in this genus are characterized by their huge jaws and long, serrated teeth. The name 'Carcharodontosaurus' is inspired by the shark genus 'Carcharodon' that includes the Great white shark, meaning "jagged tooth".

Discovery

The first specimen was originally excavated in 1914 in the Bahariya Formation of Egypt, followed by two teeth in the Continental intercalaire of Algeria in 1924. The genus Carcharodontosaurus was not coined, however, until 1931 when paleontologist Ernst Stromer connected the two discoveries, based on the unique serrations on the teeth.

Paleoecology

Based on fossil locations, Carcharodontosaurus likely lived in coastal wetland, and swampy mangrove forests.
