Japanese jigokudani Park (Jigokudani Monkey Park) is famous for thermal springs in which to bathe Japanese snow monkeys. The Park is surrounded by the cold hostile forests, a third of the season the ground is covered with snow, therefore almost all of the macaques spend time relaxing in a natural Spa. In the group of monkeys a strict hierarchy – children inherit the status of the mother. Only monkeys with higher status can bathe in the source. In the evening languished monkeys crawling back under the protection of the forest. These primates – the cold resistance on the Ground. They are able to survive at temperatures below -15°C.
