Carcharodontosaurus was a genus in the Carcharodontosauridae family. It was a large carnivore that lived in Northern Africa also in South America 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.

In the game Jurassic Park: Explorer the following information is given about the creature:

Native to Northern Africa, Carcharodontosaurus had an enormous jaw with long serrated teeth that were up to 8 inches long. It's long muscular legs might have allowed it to run at speeds of up to 20 miles/hour.

Wikipedia has a more detailed and comprehensive article on Carcharodontosaurus


In every most of the Jurassic Park games the Carcharodontosaurus was to have a wide variety of sounds. 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.[citation needed] 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.[citation needed]

See Carcharodontosaurus/Operation Genesis

Carcharodontosaurus is available in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis as a four-star large carnivore, albeit misspelled as "Carcharadontosaurus". They prefer open areas with water. They are covered in black coating while the underparts are gray to white they also seem to have red crests over their eyes.When hunting faster prey it is known to wait in thick vegetation and ambush attacks. According to JP:OG, it seems to live on Sorna. In this game, it gets along well with fellow four-star dinosaur Acrocanthosaurus. By coincidence, paleontologist have classified the Acrocanthosaurus as a carcharodontosaur; making the two close relatives. Other coincidences are also that 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 super member of the family. In JPOG it slightly resembles a Giganotosaurus. That might be only because they are related. On the PC version, it can be modded to make Giganotosaurus.
