Blueprint Path

The blueprint path for Carcharodontosaurus is below.



  • Carcharodontasaurus spawns in the same points as gigas, but they are a rare spawn.

  • Flying tames are the best defense against them. They can inflict a gnash defect similar to a Giga.

Taming Supplies
  • You'll need a tribe mate, a wyvern, 5-9 metal gateways, a simple bed and foundation, some large beartraps, and lots of patience.

Taming Process
  • First, you set up a trap using metal gateways and beartraps.

  • Lure the Carcharodontasaurus into the trap using a Wyvern.

  • Once trapped, feed it large dinos until you've filled its trust meter.

  • Once the trust meter is filled, you can ride the Carcharodontasaurus but it's not tamed yet.

  • Go on a rampage, killing many dinos to fill up the taming effectiveness.

Taming Tips
  • Baby dinosaurs with max health increase the taming bar faster.

  • Taming efficiency drops if you take damage.

  • Eating rare flowers while riding the Carcharodontasaurus attracts wild dinos.

  • You can use various tactics to feed the Carcharodontasaurus, like using throwaway tames or dinos with high health.



I feel lucky to have crossed paths with Carcharodontosaurus medicupestis and lived to tell the tale. Though I’m not sure if this predator grows bigger than a Giganotosaurus, I hope never to find out. Just one of these bruisers held its own against an army of us, and that encounter cost us dearly. Carcharodontosaurus can sweep aside attackers with its tail, but it’s the other end you’ll really want to avoid. It has teeth like steak knives, set in jaws strong enough to shred most prey. Even a near-miss will carve you up, but good. Like its namesake the great white shark, Carcharodontosaurus gets more dangerous once it tastes blood. Each kill seems to give these monsters a rush and drive it into a berserker frenzy.


Anyone that manages to tame a Carcharodontosaurus will gain a new way to rally their tribe for battle. There’s something about this monster’s roar that drives others to fight — a war cry for Hell’s own army. The more tactical tribes will let their Carcharodontosaurus tear through the mid-sized creatures in their enemy’s ranks, thereby building up its bloodrage to take on the largest threats. Talk about shock and awe!

Real World Creature Description

Carcharodontosaurus: The Shark-Toothed King of the Cretaceous

When discussions arise about the most formidable carnivorous dinosaurs, the name T-Rex often dominates. However, the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex was not the only colossal predator to roam the Earth. Enter Carcharodontosaurus, the "Shark-toothed lizard," a fearsome predator that once stalked the lands of Northern Africa during the Cretaceous period, giving even the T-Rex a run for its money in terms of size and ferocity.

**Discovering the Gia

Carcharodontosaurus was first unearthed in the early 20th century from the sands of the Sahara Desert. The name was inspired by the dinosaur's massive, sharp teeth, which were reminiscent of the great white shark's teeth, Carcharodon carcharias. Initially, only fragments of this magnificent creature were discovered, but later excavations would reveal more complete specimens, offering a detailed look into this predator's life and habits.

Physical Stature

Carcharodontosaurus was enormous, even by dinosaur standards. Estimates based on discovered fossils suggest that this beast reached lengths of up to 40-43 feet (12-13 meters) and stood at about 11-12 feet (3.5 meters) tall at the hips. It weighed in at around 6 to 8 tons.

Its skull alone was a sight to behold, measuring nearly 5 feet in length and filled with sharp, serrated teeth that could grow up to 8 inches long. This formidable bite, combined with its size, made Carcharodontosaurus one of the apex predators of its environment.

Habitat and Behavior

Carcharodontosaurus lived approximately 100 million years ago during the mid-Cretaceous period. The regions it inhabited, which are now part of Northern Africa, were once lush and river-laden, teeming with diverse fauna. This provided the predator with a variety of prey, from herbivorous dinosaurs to smaller carnivores.

While it's challenging to discern behavior from fossils, the anatomy of Carcharodontosaurus suggests it was a powerful and fast-moving hunter. Its strong legs and robust build would have allowed it to chase down prey, while its massive jaws and teeth could deliver a devastating bite.

Significance in Paleontology

The discovery of Carcharodontosaurus was a turning point in understanding the diversity of large theropod dinosaurs. It demonstrated that during the Cretaceous, different continents hosted different apex predators, with the Carcharodontosaurus reigning in Africa and the T-Rex in North America.

Moreover, the unearthed fossils have provided insight into the evolutionary lineage of theropods and their distribution patterns during the Cretaceous period. The similarities and differences between Carcharodontosaurus and other large theropods offer a captivating study into convergent evolution, where unrelated species develop similar traits due to analogous environmental pressures.


Carcharodontosaurus stands as a testament to the incredible diversity and grandeur of the Mesozoic era's predatory dinosaurs. While the T-Rex often steals the spotlight in popular culture, the "Shark-toothed lizard" of Africa, with its colossal size and razor-sharp teeth, reminds us of the myriad of awe-inspiring creatures that once roamed our planet.
