如果你觉得一只狗的眼睛似乎在告诉你一件事情或通过眼神得到你的注意,那么这可能是狗眼睛周围的肌肉出现了进化。研究人员发现,这样的进化使得它们能够做出对人类特别有吸引力的表情。

If a dog has eyes that seem to be telling you something or demanding your attention, it could be evolution's way of manipulating your feelings, because researchers have identified a muscle that allows dogs to create a puppy eyes expression that helps them bond with their human companions.

如果一只狗的眼睛似乎在告诉你一件事情或希望得到你的注意,那么这可能是进化用它独有的方式在操纵人类的情绪,因为研究人员发现了一个可以让狗模仿幼犬可爱眼神的肌肉,以帮助它们与人类伙伴建立情感联结。
