No that's not good enough, it could explain why there could seem to be more complete info about dinosaurs, because paleontologists clump their categories more broadly than paleoanthropologists. But it can't explain the more complete fossils of dinoaurs. In terms of RS scavenging, Could it be that as prey species, our ancestor's relatively fragile bones were regularly crunched up and totally destroyed by predators. Like RS is saying? I remember in a nature reserve where lions had brought down a zebra on a tarred road, finding the next morning just a wet area in the tar and a single little gland. The preservation of post-cranial bones in sediba could be because when alive, the animals crawled so far into the cave that their predator could get to them. And the Taung child skull might have just been dropped into a limey lake by the eagle carrying it, maybe a bigger eagle swooped down on it, that successive stealing is common amongst raptors?
