**** I agree, I don't see the need for tooth picks.  Perhaps the arms were
used in defense since they are near the throat or they could've been used to
restrain the victims defensive moves while the jaws moved in for the kill.
Otherwise,  they may have assisted in leveraging the jaws to tear off large
hunks of meat.
