    never mind the VAST superiority any toolmaking race has. humans became dominant because of tools. quite a big part of our intellectual evolution fulled and was fuelled by tools. tools provide a massive advantage you can't ignore. there is a big limit for whatever race doesn't. it limits food income and thus, limits the amount of extra activities and organs it can produce.
    Correct... tools and our BIG brains!

    The predator is at the top of pyramid in that area, possibly the entire planet. If a disease went through its primary (perhaps only) food source and wiped them out, could the predator species adapt to other sources of food? How good would it be at exploiting aquatic food resources should it be required to do so? How good would it be at hunting flying creatures? Would it ever be able to use a stargate to go to another world and hunt there? Tool use helps us to exploit many different areas.

    The predator is limited in its development and as such might well be doomed to extinction should it have a major interruption in the food supply. The lack of tool use limits the need for an increase in intelligence. As smart as it *might* be, I doubt the species would ever get any smarter.
