Smile! (50) More files...
The scientific jury is still out on whether or not animals do actually smile. It’s perfectly reasonable to expect that the smiles we see on these animals are a case of pareidolia – our tendency to see human faces in everything around us. Many animals have different complex visual cues to express their emotions including raising their haunches, baring their teeth, changing their postures and raising, lowering or wagging their tails, so it would be reasonable to expect that smiles could also be part of their vocabulary. Regardless, we thought you'd enjoy this light-hearted gallery so click on any image to see the full selection!
