Genus: Carcharodontosaurus (Stromer, 1931)
Carcharodontosauridae (from the Greek Carcharodontosauros: "lizard with shark teeth") was a family of theropod carnivorous dinosaurs, The carcarodontosaurids included some of the largest known predators: Giganotosaurus, Mapusaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Tyrannotitan, etc. .. They rivaled Tyrannosaurus in size.
Carcharodontosaurids were the main predators in the lower and middle Cretaceous in Gondwana and present-day Europe (Neovenator), and also in North America (Acrocanthosaurus). They temporarily extended from the Barremian (127-121 million years ago) to the Cenomanian (99-93 million years ago).
