* The kissing gourami is a species of fish that has large lips and actually kisses like a human would. Inverted in that those kisses are a form of fighting.

** Cats have scent glands in their faces, and they rub things to declare to other cats "this object belongs to the cat that it smells like." So a cat rubbing its head on you is saying it likes you .... well enough to claim ownership of you.

* Social whales and porpoises, having no appendages suitable for hugging, will rub or nudge one another to express affection. Dolphins do the same, and pairs will also swim in perfect synchrony with bonded companions.

* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'' the cats often rub their faces together or wash each other as a sign of affection (or "sharing tongues" as its called). Cats also touch their noses to different parts of their bodies to signify different gestures, such as to comfort another cat or to show respect. This is pretty much what cats do in RealLife, so it works pretty well.

* Not animals, but in the future world of the ''Literature/{{Xenogenesis}}'' series, humanity has been altered by aliens, and as a result adults feel extreme discomfort if they make skin-to-skin contact with one another. Because of this, stroking someone's hair has become the default gesture of affection.
* Also not animals, but there are a lot of lipless aliens in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}''. Andalites kiss by stroking each other with their palms. Hork-Baijir kiss by touching their foreheads against each other.



* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', kissing is a problem for female Shepard and her optional [[InterspeciesRomance alien Love Interest]] Garrus, as his species doesn't really have lips and swapping saliva could lead to a fatal allergic reaction for both of them. They settle for a HeadbuttOfLove instead. [[http://nicca-11y.deviantart.com/art/How-to-kiss-a-turian-II-254551631 Fanart has fun with this]].



** In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Hearts and Hooves Day", pony couples are shown performing Eskimo kisses. This appears again in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E8HardToSayAnything Hard to Say Anything]] when Big Mcintosh nuzzles Sugar Belle's nose.

* In episode XCIV of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' a few of the assasins from the Cult of Aku see a buck and doe nuzzling their noses together. Being raised as {{Tyke Bomb}}s, they don't understand what such affectionate gestures mean.
