Snow Monkeys of Japan

Snow Monkeys are a native of Japan living mostly in snow falling locations. They are also known as Japanese macaques (means Japanese Monkeys). They have a short tail, red face and brown to grey hair. Due to the cold weather they live in, they love to visit hot springs for warming up. It is interesting to watch them bathing as a group in the hot springs and playing with snow balls for fun.
