    Only humans show their teeth in friendship
    Is the smile a human only Phenomenon?

    A smile is a smile

    When animals show their teeth; they mean business---,.,./\,./\.,.,

    When we humans show our teeth; it’s called a smile

    Humans are the only animals that show their teeth in friendship
