Top: Neanderthal (Forbes Quarry), modern human
Bottom: African lion
A cat can spot its prey from 3 km away. Can you? Do you think the Neanderthal could?
The cat has dagger-like fangs and molar teeth that would put a deli meat-slicer to shame. "Aha!" you might say, "that chap from Forbes quarry couldn't be as effective as the lion--it doesn't have the appropriate dental accoutrements!" Umm. It's possible, isn't it, that all those flint flakes lying about came in handy for more than whittling?
