The female bonobo was looking at a picture of herself in a video camera viewer (which was turned backwards so she could see herself).

She is obviously looking at the viewer, rather than directly into the camera. This is because the camera viewer was to my left and she is quite definitly looking to the left at the viewer, rather than directly into the camera lens.

She at first shook her head at the bonobo in the camera's viewer. Then it appeared that she began to recognize herself (when she stuck her fingers in her mouth) and started making faces into the camera. She then pointed to her missing tooth several times. (She wasn't doing this behavior when not looking at the camera and would probably need to see herself in order to notice that her tooth was missing.) She seemed to have a sence of humor - some of her faces seemed amusing (a subjective feeling). Later a male threatoned her. He had looked at the camera viewer before she did, but did not understand what he saw. He seemed to sense that something was happening with the female that didn't happen with him. (Video by Scott at Cincinnati Ohio zoo.)
