* Among sociable mammals, such as chimps, baboons, or rats, mutual grooming can serve a similar function to human kissing.

Added DiffLines:

* Parrots will nip at each other's beaks to show affection, either between mates or close family members (siblings, children and parents, etc.). They'll do this with humans they like too, usually but not always gently enough not to hurt our "soft beaks".

* Dog owners often refer to their dog licking a face as getting "kissed", more so for small breeds. Cats nuzzling their owners is also often said to be this.
** Though cats have scent glands in their muzzles, and this is at least partly them marking you as "their property." Bumping the top of their head against you is more akin to actual affection. The page image shows Nala doing this to Simba (she's also rubbing her muzzle on him, but it starts as more of a headbutt).

* Nuzzling noses is apparently a common display of affection among the monsters in ''VideoGames/{{Undertale}}'', to the point where they even made a competitive event out of it. A BattleCouple you encounter were the runners-up one year.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rio}}'' has its two main birds kiss despite the movie having a surprising amount biological correctness up to that point. Somewhat {{justified}}: parrots in RealLife do bite each others' beaks affectionately, which is not that different from a human kiss.
