A child crying.

Crying is when tears come out of a person's eyes because of their emotions, such as when they are sad, angry, or very happy.

Animals cannot cry. However, animals can release tears for other reasons, such as intense pain.[1]

When over 300 adults were asked how often they cried, they found out that men usually cry once every month, and women cry five or more times per month.[2]
