Maybe a pride of lions will kill and eat a whole person but in captivity with just one or two?...if anything they'll just take an arm or a leg. Why do you think sharks never swallow people whole?
    "Lions don't eat people"

    That could have been the last words spoken by a Christian optimist prior to being fed to the lions in Rome's Colosseum.

    What are you talking about steal, Lions DO eat large mammals, why do they attack creatures like buffalos and zebras then? They are alot larger then a humen being O_o

    But yes, it is rare they attack, even though I've seen the video clip of the tourist gettin out of his car to take pretty pictures of the lion...bad idea..

    You ever heard of one lion killing and eating something four times its size? They're not panthers or jaguars that'll kill something, eat some, and then drag it up a tree to eat later...

    Edit - Yep, the Wiki says so:
    I doubt the shark ate the person in the armor though... or that shark would be like... 200 years old.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I guess that shark wasn't expecting the Spanish inquisition; but he sure seemed to enjoy it.

    Some sharks do live past 100...

    But you're right. The point I was making was about the size. (And that tiger sharks eat weird stuff.) If it will swallow a suit of armour, I don't see why it wouldn't swallow a person whole - much easier to get down, surely. (Even more so if the person isn't fighting back anymore.)
