Things appear to have got too much for this baboon as he crouched down by the side of the jungle.

Sitting in the rain, the poor monkey desperately rubs his eyes, which looks like he is shedding a few tears.

But Julia Sundukova, who captured this image discovered the monkey is actually blind in one eye and has a scarred face.

Julia from Moscow, said: “Something was disturbing him and he rubbed his face like children do when they cry.

“It was so touching – especially, when you see his brutal face in other positions.

“This baboon is from baboons’ heaven – Lake Manyara National Park, Tanzania. He is blind in one eye and has some scars on his face.

“What amazes me – the way all animals can bear the pain. Awfully wounded they behave normally. In the wild you have to be strong to survive – another reason to learn from them.”
