Of Sexual Dimorphism

Sexual dimorphism is an interesting thing. Thanks to it, as a card-carrying male Homo sapiens sapiens, I'm possessed of physical prowess, tremendous hunting skills, the ability to fend off rival males, the intellect needed to understand spacial relationships and perceive potential threats...(...um, er, not really, but I make a meager salary in accounting...).

Among celebes crested macaques, sexual dimorphism bestows upon the females a large, pink, pillowy buttocks. I'll keep my salary, and you macaque ladies keep your bottoms. I think we'll be happier that way. I wouldn't know how to sit down, and you wouldn't be able to keep up with the mortgage payments (a task I have yet to master).

I wonder if there's a celebes crested macaque version of Sir Mix-a-Lot?

Thank you for showing me (yet again) why I am glad H. sapiens doesn't have estrus in the manner of smaller primates. As if PMS wasn't bad enough... *shudder*

BTW, that female's posterior will be less... inflated... when she's no longer fertile. Even if it is a cyclical thing, it still looks really uncomfortable.

If I didn't know that was normal, I would seriously think something was wrong what that monkey.

As a female homo sapien, I agree we have evolved a slightly better alternative to this kind of estrus.

There's a cartoon idea coming from that "built-in airbag comment..."
