Abstract:Human babies are able to follow their mother's line of sight at nine months of age. However, whether and when closely-related non-human primates exhibit this ability remains unclear. In addition, whether gazing behavior can be used as an indicator of cognitive development or measured and used for diagnosis are also important, but as yet unanswered questions. We studied a group of Rhinopithecus roxellanae in the Guanyinshan Nature Reserve in the southern Qinling Mountains of Foping county in China from March 2015 to February 2016. Using a photo guide experiment, we observed and recorded the behavior of different age groups. Results showed that gazing behavior in R. roxellanae existed, and the patterns of this behavior differed in different age groups, suggesting that gazing might be a developmental behavior in early stage. This research could provide a reference for the behavioral measurement and diagnosis of children under different growth environments.
