There"s that classic lower-lip "smile" that makes Ndume so endearing to everyone (especially Koko). However, it turns out that when Ndume grins with his teeth like this, it usually means that he's upset (not happy). When he really smiles at you, he looks right into your eyes - a gesture that's a little challenging to photograph. But we'll keep at it.

Wonder if Ndume knows that Koko's in estrus this week.
