would you rather be eaten by ants or lions?

I found this at National Geographic news: ""Man eaters have historically been considered aberrant or exceptional," said study co-author Julian Kerbis Peterhans, an adjunct curator of mammals at The Field Museum and an associate professor at Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois. "In fact they are carnivores that have always included primates [such as humans] as part of their diets," he said. Having been to Six Flags in Vallejo and seen this big boys close up, and heard their handlers talk about how they have to raise them from cubs or be slowly exposed to them for three years before they are accepted, I'm not really surprised. Personlly, having seen the size of their paws, claws, and teeth, would really prefer to have it over qwuickly. Then again, if you have ever owned a cat, and seen how they play with birds and mice, maybe it wouldn't be that quick. It'd have to be quicker then the ants though, so I'd go with, 'amazing painfully' and hope it would also be amazingly quick. I would rather be eaten by a lion.
