Apparently when Lucy went looking for a meal of meat 3.4 million years ago, she and her family Brought their Own Stone Utensils.

"Now, when we imagine Lucy walking around the east African landscape looking for food, we can for the first time imagine her with a stone tool in hand and looking for meat

With stone tools in hand to quickly pull off flesh and break open bones, animal carcasses would have become a more attractive source for food," he said. "This type of behavior sent us down a path that later would lead to two of the defining features of our species -- carnivory and tool manufacture and use.”

SporkThink of what they could have done with these.
