Seeing everyone make their  Pokemon variations I just wanted to make some of my own so bad! So I jumped on the Bandwagon with the mighty Tyrantrum!

Had the idea of making it into a few iconic theropods (even though a few of these aren’t too related lol).
Before you ask, I didn’t make Spinosaurus because it strays farther away from Tyrantrum’s design than what I preferred. The only reason I didn’t make Allosaurus was because of time constraints).

Carcharodontosaurus and other closely related species like Giganotosaurus  belong to the carcharodontid family because their sharp serrated teeth resemble sharks’ teeth. You can see how similar their skulls are even though they were found on two different continents.

CARCHARODONTOSAURUS
“Jagged toothed lizard”
Early-Late Cretaceous, 100-93 million years ago

Carcharodontosaurus is named after the great white shark (genus Carcharodon), due to the shape and serration of its teeth. It was bigger than Tyrannosaurus rex, and possibly even bigger than T. rex’s larger cousin, Giganotosaurus! It roamed across what is now northern Africa – remains have been found from Egypt to Algeria. Many paleontologists cite Carcharodontosaurus as a prime example of excluding Africa from a balanced world narrative.
