Baring teeth
As a female backs up to this mandrill alpha male to present herself, he bows his head and draws back the corners of the mouth, exposing his canines. Earlier researchers interpreted this snarl-like expression as a threat. However, it turns out, that this is actually a gesture mostly used to welcome socialising, like the smile of the black crested macaque. The ‘bared-teeth display’ in mandrills is often followed by grooming, mating or play. Gabon.

فيما تدعم أنثى ذكر ألفا من قردة الميمون ليقدم نفسه، يحني رأسه ويكشف عن أنيابه. اعتبر باحثون سابقون هذا التعبير تهديداً ولكن تبين لاحقاً أنه تعبيرٌ ينمّ عن إيماءة غالباً ما تُستخدم لدعم العلاقات مثل ابتسامة قردة المكّاك الأسود. غالباً ما يُعتبر الكشف عن الأنياب لدى الميمون دعوة إلى التزاوج أو اللعب. الغابون.
