Monkeys sign LMTFA just like humans.

Monkeys learn to cover their eyes when they want to be left alone - Telegraph

The mandrills - the largest member of the monkey family - put their hands over their eyes when they want to be left alone. 
It is a gesture that has never been seen before, and experts believe it is evidence of social culture among animals. They believe one of the mandrills made up the gesture and passed it on to her pals something that is common in humans but almost unheard of in animals.
Pssst. Humans are animals, pass it on.  (What? You thought we were vegetables or minerals?)
