Note -   Link to Carchardontosaurus teeth

Carcharodontosaurus was a very large Theropod dinosaur thought to be similar in size to T-Rex. The teeth are serrated like a knife and used to slice flesh. Carcharodontosaurus was the apex predator of its time in Cretaceous Africa (~100 MM years old) - a very fearsome dinosaur! These are incredibly preserved teeth from the monster dinosaur that was the T-Rex of northern Africa! This beast went extinct ~32 MM years prior to T-Rex.
