    Re: Do animals have eyebrows?

    camels i think might have more noticeable ones.

    a lot of animals have a distinct browline...but they have hair everywhere so you won't notice a real discernable 'eyebrow' as we know it.

    some apes or monkeys might have more noticeable ones too.





    it's hard to see eyebrows in animals...as they have fur everywhere...but they're there

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_communication
    Eyes and eyebrows
    While dogs don't have actual eyebrows, they do have a distictive ridge above their eyes, and some breeds, like the Rottweiler and the German Shepherd, have markings there. A dog's eyebrow movements usually express a similar emotion to that of a human's eyebrow movements. Raised eyebrows suggest interest, lowered brows suggest confusion or mild anger, and one eyebrow up suggests bewilderment. Slitted eyes translate the same as human's also: suspicion or anger.

    Camels have bushy eyebrows and two rows of eyelashes to keep the sand out of their eyes.

    Re: Do animals have eyebrows?

    Well, it depends on your definition of "eyebrows." ^_^ It seems like many animals have a defined brow ridge, or movable skin above the eyes (so they can "raise their eyebrows"). But if you're talking about just the hair, then I don't know...

    Man, even Shango (my ferret) lowers her eyebrows when she's angry, and then she looks soooo scary, and the other ferrets leave her alone even though they're each twice as big as her. ^_^
