"Anthropophagi are not native to the Americas. They are to Northern and Western Africa and the Caroli Islands, but not here... They are not natural scavengers... Anthropophagi prefer fresh flesh, but there are things that drive them even more powerful than hunger... The female can breed, but she cannot bear. She lacks a womb, you see, for that location of her anatomy is given to another, more vital organ; her brain. When the female bears, she places the child inside the mouth of the male Anthropophagi, and unless they find a host to leave the child in, the child will pop from its protective sac and will kill the male anthropophagi."
