Pre-human dating scene was a real jungle

LiveScience- "Humans basically court each other one-on-one today, but 2 million-year-old skulls tucked away in South African caves suggest that our ancient male relatives dated troops of females. The bones belonged to Paranthropus robustus hominids, mostly males. These extinct human relatives split away from our evolutionary track about 2.5 million years ago. Scientists said the preponderance of male skulls, located in what were likely lairs of hyenas or leopards, offered a clear view into our close relative's social world. "
