Eocarcharia facts
 

This theropod lived in Niger , Africa 110 million years ago. It had blade like teeth that could rip its prey apart . Its prominent bony eyebrow and the rood of its skull were made of tick bone-ticker than in other theropods. This could mean that these dinosaurs butted heads during mating season . Eocarcharia was much smaller than its later relative "Carcharodontosaurus"
