Couldn't the birds have made holes in the skull after a person was already dead?

It is not the looking up quickly that was the mistake.
Move first after seeing the shadow and then after look to see what it was.
If one looks up quickly all you see is the sharp talons.

The story's predator reminds me of the national bird in my home country, the Philippine Monkey-Eating Eagle, which earned its name for hunting and consuming macaques.

No, I think that was from a radio broadcaster. They were apes for sure.

I, too, am looking for the digital files referred to from the radio story. Does anyone know how to get to them?

Where can we find the scan to 3D print? Shouldn't it be a complete 3D file? All I see is this picture.

Thanks!

The opening scene in 2001: A Space Odyssesy featured monkeys? I thought these were apes. This from an anthropologist? Correct me if I'm wrong. Not certain of the speaker's credentials though pretty sure he studied anthropology.
The segment was quite interesting. Thank you.
