All Carcharodontosaurus reviews

Carcharodontosaurus (Deluxe Prehistoric Collection by CollectA)

It was some time back in 1995-96 when I first heard of Carcharodontosaurus. Although it had been known to science since 1931, it wasn’t until 1995 when an expedition led by Paul Sereno unearthed additional cranial material for the theropod that Carcharodontosaurus had its moment in the lime light. The media proclaimed it as being …

Carcharodontosaurus (Gamba) (Prehistoric Animal Models by PNSO)

Eight short years ago I wrote a glowing review for the CollectA Deluxe Carcharodontosaurus. At the time the praise was deserved, aside from a Safari toy from the 1990’s there weren’t any other options for the “jagged toothed lizard”.

Carcharodontosaurus (GR Toys by Haolongood)

Carcharodontosaurus (Jurassic World Dino-Escape, Mega Destroyers by Mattel)

It has been a good year for Carchorodontosaurus, as I mentioned in my review of the figure by PNSO. The PNSO figure, along with the one by GR toys, gave sophisticated collectors a fantastic, updated pair of “shark toothed lizards” to display and admire whilst sipping brandy by the fireside. And for those who just …

Carcharodontosaurus (original version) (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

When a dinosaurs has a name that means “shark toothed lizard”, you would probably expect the toy depicting that dinosaur to be scary and intense.  Carcharodontosaurus was an apex predator and carnivore that frightened most of the local fauna in its day.  Its enormous jaws were filled with long, serrated teeth that were designed to rip …

Carcharodontosaurus (Recur)

The frightful Carcharodontosaurus derives its name from its razor-sharp teeth, which resemble a great white shark’s. Although it shared its range in Late Cretaceous Africa with Spinosaurus, the two animals probably avoided conflict by pursuing different prey. Recur’s rendition of Carcharodontosaurus stands 12.5 cm tall and measures about 21 cm long. It is sculpted in …

Carcharodontosaurus 2016(Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

Kids perspective by William, edited by Laticauda In North Africa 96 million years ago during the Cretaceous period there lived a large theropod named Carcharodontosaurus.  It was one of the largest carnivores; its skull alone was around 5 ft (1.6 meters) long.  This “shark toothed lizard” had long, sharp, serrated teeth that would slash through …
