Caption

Prehistoric skull and leopard teeth. Fossil skull of an Australopithecus robustus child, with leopard teeth (canines) placed in holes showing how this specimen was killed as prey. This fossil skull dates from the Oldowan (Archaic Palaeolithic) period that ranged from 2.6 million to 1.7 million years ago. A. robustus (also known as Paranthropus robustus) was an extinct hominid that lived in Africa during the late Pliocene between 2.6 and 1 million years ago. It formed part of the human evolutionary tree.
