A quick question.

At a time when the forests were shrinking and savannahs were expanding why
would a hominid -- with very little defence -- choose a scavenger-type life?
Were hominids driven out of the forest, if so, then by what? What does the
fossil record tell of other primates that would have been dominant enough to
drive out a species. Could some of these have been misclassified as hominid?
Thanks in advance
