The lipstick monkey
All snub-nosed monkeys have enlarged lips, but the black-and-white snub-nosed monkey has taken the effect one step further by ‘adding’ pink colour to the lips. The dominant males have the reddest lips, and during the mating season they ‘turn up’ the redness of their lips even further. In contrast, the younger males ‘turn down’ the redness of their lips in the mating season, so as not to provoke the dominant males with their lips. Yunnan, China.

تمتلك جميع القردة ذات الأنف الأفطس شفاهاً كبيرة إلاّ أنّ القرد الأسود والأبيض ذا الأنف الأفطس يتميز باللون الأحمر على شفاهه. تمتلك الذكور المسيطرة أكثر الشفاه حمرةً وخلال موسم التزاوج، تزداد حمرة شفاهها. وعلى عكسها، تنخفض حدّة اللون الأحمر لدى الذكور الأصغر خلال موسم التزاوج تفادياً لاستفزاز الذكور المسيطرة بشفاهها. يونان، الصين.
