Over the next nine months, the unfortunate railway workers became the target of two man-eating lions now known to have been brothers. These lions were huge, measuring over three meters long, and, as is usual among lions from the Tsavo region, they were maneless. At first, the two lions snatched the men from their tents, dragging them to the bush and devouring them at night.
Their size, ferocity and cunning were so extraordinary that many natives thought that they were not actually lions, but rather demons, or perhaps the reincarnation of ancient local kings trying to repel the British invaders the belief of dead kings being reborn as lions was once very common in Eastern Africa.
The two man-eaters were nicknamed The Ghost and The Darkness, and workers were so afraid of them that they fled by the hundreds out of Tsavo. Eventually, the Chief Engineer in charge of the railway project, John Henry Patterson, decided that the only solution was to kill the man eaters. He was very close to being killed by the lions but, eventually, he managed to shoot the first one in December of , and two weeks later, he managed to shot the second one. By this time, the lions had killed people.
This cave still exists today and, although many bones have been exhumed, it is said that many still remain inside. Some experts have recently claimed that the lions only ate about 35 of their human victims. Today, the Tsavo man-eaters or rather, their stuffed pelts can be seen in the Field Museum of Chicago, although Kenyan authorities have expressed interest in building a museum completely dedicated to them, in which case the Ghost and the Darkness could return to Tsavo once again.
As a matter of fact, the leopard is perhaps our oldest predator; leopard bite marks have been found in the fossil bones of our hominid relatives, suggesting that the spotted cat was already dining on our ancestors over three million years ago. But although any adult leopard may see humans as suitable prey under the right circumstances, only a few of them become actual man-eaters, preferring human flesh over any other food.
The deadliest man-eating leopard of all times was the Panar leopard. This male leopard lived in the Kumaon area of India during the early XX century. He was most active in the Panar province, where he killed over people, being the second most prolific man eater in recorded history after 2 in this list. It seems that the leopard had been injured by a hunter, and rendered unable to hunt wild animals, so it turned to man-eating to survive.
He was finally killed by famous hunter and conservationist, Jim Corbett, in Although the Panar leopard is the most infamous of all, there were others that were just as feared. The Kahani man-eater, for example, killed over people, and the Rudraprayag man-eater, who stalked and killed pilgrims en route to a Hindu shrine, killed people before he, too, was shot by Jim Corbett.
Smaller, more agile and, some say, more cunning than lions or tigers, leopards were considered to be among the deadliest animals in the world by big game hunters. During the late XIX century, a Nepalese region close to the Himalayas was terrorized by the most notorious and prolific man-eater of all times. Men, women and children were ambushed in the jungle by the dozens. The attacks were so frequent and so bloody that people started talking about demons, and even punishment from the gods.
In one below. And on. And you might do it. You know what. Point Brian. Maybe it will be plenty to part for me. Oh my god. I had tried, but I told my dad. Why me. What kind of given point in life. According to the research, published in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters , the achievements of human speed eaters are impressive even by comparison with other species.
Wolves, which devour prey at incredible speed, could outdo even elite human eaters, however. Competitive hotdog eaters nearing limit of human performance.

Experience gained in a part-time position should be pro-rated. As a guideline, two years of relevant and applicable work experience are typically equal to one year of college education.
This guideline is provided to assist in translating knowledge equivalency, whether achieved through actual experience or formal education. Example: On the job experience working as a Medical Transcriptionist would likely be considered relevant experience for a Staff Assistant position but would not be considered relevant for a Radiologic Technologist. Prior work experience that is indirectly relevant to the work performed by the staff member in his or her job should be counted when determining total relevant work experience.
