If ever there was a perfect mascot for National Dentist Day, celebrated on March 6, it’s the crab-eating macaque. This individual was photographed cleaning its teeth in Malaysia’s Bako National Park. Crab-eating macaques are native to Southeast Asia and they have a proclivity for using tools to forage, eat, and even practice dental hygiene. Scientists have observed them using blades of grass, fibers, and feathers to floss between their teeth. Give this macaque a gold star!
