How Debunking the Osteological Paradox Results in Improved Quality of Life for Retiring Apes

The term “osteological paradox” has been used to disparage research derived from skeletal collections [1]. Their explanation: After all, the animal died, so its remains are not representative of the species? This unproven speculation could be correct if observation of the phenomenon of interest were to be affected by the agonal event. Speculation has been offered that wild “harvested” animals may not be representative, as perhaps they were slower or less effective at hiding than other members of their species who got away.
