2.20" Carcharodontosaurus Tooth - Real Dinosaur Tooth
The tooth has nice enamel and serrations along both edges of the tooth. There are two repaired cracks with a gap fill near the tip.
Along with the spinosaurids, carcharodontosaurids were the largest predators in the early and middle Cretaceous throughout Gondwana, with species also present in North America (Acrocanthosaurus), and Asia (Shaochilong). Various scientists submit length estimates for C. saharicus ranging between 12 and 13 m (39-43.5 ft) and weight estimates between 6 and 15 metric tons.
Carcharodontosaurids were a scourge of the land as giant, shark-toothed terrors in a world of monsters. Though spinosaurids would have been a formidable enemy, they may have occupied a semi-aquatic niche which reduced competition. Both giant hunters also shared their world with menacing, 30 foot ancient crocodiles that had a taste for dinosaur.
Past the Turonian (93.9-89.8 mya), Carcharodontosaurus might have been replaced by the smaller abelisaurids in Gondwana and by tyrannosaurids in North America and Asia. The disappearance of carcharodontosaurids, spinosaurids and other fauna in Gondwana and across the world, suggests a global replacement event. Despite the event, fossils discovered in Brazil which appear to be carcharodontosaurids, indicate some survivors of this group until the latest stage of the Cretaceous.
