Fun fact about monkeys: Japanese macaques, also known as snow monkeys, are known for their unique behavior of bathing in hot springs during winter. This behavior is not only a way to stay warm but also serves a social purpose.

The hot spring bathing is more commonly observed among the macaques in the Jigokudani Monkey Park in Japan. It started with a female macaque entering a hot spring to retrieve soybeans, and others soon followed her example. Now, it has become a cultural phenomenon, and visitors can witness these snow monkeys enjoying a relaxing soak in the warm waters—a truly unique and charming aspect of monkey behavior!
