I am wondering if hominids in that period did hunt smaller animals and when they saw the carcasses of larger animals, they salvaged what marrow and brain they could from those animals?
It seems that Thoreau was onto something, “to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life”.
A query: “We have no examples today of animals that scavenge but don’t hunt”. Yet, huge numbers of insect species, many rodents, vultures, etc might argue otherwise? The scavenging niche seems well populated.
