Have you ever asked yourself, 'Are zoo animals afraid of Halloween masks?'

Improbable Research brings us a paper by someone who ran the experiment.

"Animal results showed that primate latencies correlated significantly with the human [scariness] ratings, while non-primate latencies did not."

(I also feel a desperate logical need to add another question mark to my subject line.)
