This great fossil tooth belonged to a giant carnivorous dinosaur called Carcharodontosaurus saharicus, meaning “shark-toothed lizard of the Sahara”. 

This Cretaceous predator was one of the most imposing animals to ever walk the planet, surpassing Tyrannosaurus rex in overall size, weighing between 6 and 15 metric tonnes and measuring 43 feet (13 meters) in length!

Carcharodontosaurus had menacing, serrated teeth that reached a staggering 8 inches (20 cm) in length, which lined the powerful jaws of a 5.2 foot (1.58 meter) skull.

It lived alongside other giant North African theropods, including Spinosaurus and the related Giganotosaurus, but it predated T-Rex by 25 million years.

This dinosaur tooth is an incredible gift for the price-point and sure to impress kids and adults alike.
