Japanese macaque

The Japanese macaque, also known as the “snow monkey,” is a native species of monkey in Japan, known for its baths in hot springs during the winter, a unique practice observed in certain mountainous areas of the country. With its thick fur and its ability to adapt to the harshest winter conditions, it embodies resourcefulness and resilience in the most extreme environments.
