Love is in the air
This facial expression is the reaction of a male black crested macaque to a female backing up to him and presenting him with her hindquarters. That behaviour seen in many monkeys is a way for a female to invite a male to mate with her. And, as you can tell from his grin, this male certainly understands the intention. In the black crested macaque, baring one’s teeth like that is not a threat but a smile that shows friendly intentions. Sulawesi.

يُعدّ تعبير الوجه هذا ردّ فعلٍ ذكر من قردة المكّاك الأسود لأنثى تدعمه وتعرض له خلفيتها. يُعدّ هذا السلوك الشائع لدى القردة دعوةً من أنثى لذكر للتزاوج. وكما يبدو من ابتسامته العريضة، فهو يعرف تماماً النية المقصودة. لدى قردة المكّاك الأسود، لا تُعتبر الابتسامة تهديداً إنما طريقة لإظهار النوايا الحسنة.
