Animals

This baby baboon seems to be having an identity crisis as it sports what looks like an elephant’s trunk.

The perfectly timed shot of an olive baboon with its mum was taken by Julia Sundukova during a trip to Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania.

With her offspring perched on her back the mother’s tail swung round in front of her baby’s face and Julia snapped the funny pic completely by chance.

The 32-year-old from Russia said: I found this picture in a folder a few months after the trip. I didn’t realise I had captured it.

“It was a complete accident but a really funny one.”
