  • Microphotographs of the wear patterns of lion teeth. Two on the top left are from wild-caught lions. Top right is from a captive lion. The two bottom left are from the Tsavo man-eaters. The bottom right is from the Mfuwe man-eater. The microwear patterns on the man-eaters did not show any evidence that they were consuming bones.
