Carcharodontosaurus tooth

This dinosaur is often called the African T-rex. More as a sales pitch than anything else, but there is something in it.Carcharodontosaurus saharicus would have been the top predator of its time in this region, a gigantic beast with a body shape similar to that of its better-known look-alike.

These teeth are about 96 million years old and from near Taouz, in the Kem Kem area of Morocco.
