My all time favorite chimpanzee facial expression is the “relaxed face with drooped lip.”
Jody is famous for her drooped lip face. In fact, I discovered today that if you do a google image search for “drooped lip chimpanzee,” the first three images that come up are of Jody!
But there’s another set of perhaps not as famous lips among the Cle Elum Seven – those of Negra. Rather than classic drooped lip, we like to describe Negra’s lips as “heavy.”
Below are some examples of each. What do you think is more charming – Jody’s drooped lip or Negra’s heavy lip?
