InGen Database Description
The Kem Kem Beds can be found in southeastern Morocco, on the Algerian border. It dates back to the Late Cretaceous (100.5-66 Ma), and primarily consists of reddish rock.
This formation has come to be known for its wide variety of large carnivorous theropods. Despite the formation's reputation for carnivores, however, it is not necessarily the case that the ecosystems of the time had an unusually high concentration of carnivores living side by side. Theropod teeth are more desirable, and durable, and so appear more plentiful, but in reality these animals could have lived millions of years apart.
