Come completion of the week, the majority of us are starting to run out of puff.
Carrying yourself from bed on a Friday to drag yourself into work is a difficult task. By lunch, the eyelids are heavy, enthusiasm is at a reduced and the thought of a nap on your desk is extremely tempting.
Perhaps, then, you can see much of yourself in this tired gelada baboon letting go with a massive yawn prior to settling down for a nap on her preferred rock. All that monkeying around at New york city’s Bronx Zoo had clearly taken it out of Suriya as photographer Alan Shapiro, 50, visited her enclosure.
He said: ‘They are such amazing-looking animals. I can enjoy them for hours. They are so comparable to people– they move and act similar to us. Gelada baboons typically reveal their teeth as an indication of aggression, to say “stay away”. However in this case, she was simply tired. She was settling to have a nap.’.
Gelada baboons are discovered in the Ethiopian highlands. There are approximated to be 200,000 in the wild. They can live for 19 years and are the only grazing primate worldwide.
