This behaviour evolved quite recently, after a monkey near the village of Jikogudani in the Japanese Alps observed people soaking an outdoor hot spring (onsen) and decided to join them. Finding it enjoyable, the behaviour has since spread throughout the troop. The local people have since built the monkeys their own onsen.<br/>© Elizabeth Tasker / Wildlife…

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.
