The serrations on the teeth of Carcharodontosaurus resemble those of a Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias), thus its name. Its 5’ skull had a mouthful of flattened, blade-like teeth able to shear off massive amounts of flesh while leaving a bloody wound, just like the Great White Shark does today. Combine the skull with a long, powerful body and one has the potential of a Chompion!
