Carcharodontosaurus was a genus in the Carcharodontosauridae family. It was a large carnivore that lived in Northern Africa in the Late Cretaceous Period, the same time and place as Spinosaurus. It was among the largest predatory dinosaurs (13.6 meters long), longer than Tyrannosaurus rex.
In the game Jurassic Park: Explorer the following information is given about this creature:
Native to Northern Africa, Carcharodontosaurus had an enormous jaw with long serrated teeth that were up to 8 inches long. Its long muscular legs might have allowed it to run at speeds of up to 20 miles/hour.
Carcharodontosaurus is a playable character in Warpath: Jurassic Park. It's move pattern was the same as the Giganotosaurus and the Albertosaurus. The Carcharodontosaurus appears in the Jungle Basin. It comes in cinnamon, gold, and emerald.
Carcharodontosaurus is available in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis as a four-star large carnivore, albeit misspelled as "Carcharadontosaurus". They prefer open areas with water. Their coloration is a primary black coating while the underparts are grayish white, while their crests are a bright red. When hunting faster prey, it is known to wait in thick vegetation and attack in the form of ambushing prey. According to JP:OG it lives on Isla Sorna. In this game, it gets along well with its fellow four-star carcharodontosaurian close relative, Acrocanthosaurus. Other coincidences are also that the Acrocanthosaurus was once classified as an allosaurid, which are also close relatives to the Carcharodontosaurus which up to date is now classified as a super member of the family. In JP: OG it looks like a Giganotosaurus, but only because they are related.
Carcharodontosaurus is featured in the DVD game Jurassic Park: Explorer. A player earns a dinosaur when he/she wins a minigame, when the earned dinosaur is a Carcharodontosaurus this video will be shown. The name is misspelled as Charcharadontosaurus.
Carcharodontosaurus is one of the available dinosaurs on the iOS and Android application, Jurassic Park: Builder.
Production and development
In Warpath: Jurassic Park, designer Erik R. Kraber gave the Carcharodontosaurus sounds that consisted of animals that were physically built and powerful such as growls and howls of a Bengal Tiger.
In Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis the roars of Carcharodontosaurus were more in lines of territorial sounds, which were made of screams from an aggressive African Elephant and its sinister hiss was made from sounds of crocodilians.
