Carcharodontosaurus Tooth - SOLD 2.95"

Deadly, gigantic, and hungry, the Carcharodontosaurus was one of the most fearsome predators of the mid-Cretaceous. This massive theropod is sometimes nicknamed “The Moroccan T. Rex,” though it was really related to the even larger Giganotosaurus. 

This specimen is a complete crown of a real, fossilized Carcharodontosaurus tooth from the Kem Kem fossil beds of Morocco. The tooth measures 2.95" in length.

 

Deadly, gigantic, and hungry, the Carcharodontosaurus was one of the most fearsome predators of the mid Cretaceous. This massive theropod is sometimes nicknamed “The Moroccan T. Rex,” though it was actually related to the even larger Giganotosaurus. Carcharodontosaurus is estimated to have grown as large as 44 feet long with a weight of 16 tons, with a terrifying set of serrated teeth to match, which it used to dominate the Kem Kem river delta.

Some Carcharodontosaurus remains have been found within hunting proximity of other predator families like abelisaurids and spinosaurids. How did these apex theropods manage to coexist with each other? While it’s very likely the carnivores fought with each other over territory, they also had very different teeth structures. Because of this, it's thought that the dinosaurs fulfilled unique ecological niches, meaning there would be less rivalry for food.
