The behavior appeared to be purposeful, concentrating on the elbow. … Once the back of her limb was covered in the white lather and her fur was obviously wet, she bit off more of the leaves that she was holding in her foot, and repeated the process, this time on her right forelimb. After she had lathered both limbs, she removed the wadge from her mouth and discarded it.” Commelina sp. Unlike Cebus , no change in affect, no excitement.
