Japanese snow monkeys reside farther north than any other primate, aside from humans. In the Japanese Alps of Honshu Island, these Japanese macaques, better known as snow monkeys, display almost human social interaction. When the animals began frequenting a local hot spring, human residents decided to build a monkey-specific spring where the macaques can enjoy a daily afternoon bath and grooming. This group of monkeys is habituated to humans and felt no inhibitions about approaching us.
