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.
