Spanish: Los monos de la nieve
1 Monkeys are smart. There is no disputing that. Yet, among nearly 200 different kinds of monkeys, there is just one who knows the secret of living comfortably in a cold climate! That unique species is the snow monkey.
2 Snow monkeys are also called Japanese macaques (pronounced ma-kaks). They can be found in forested areas on three of the four main Japanese islands of Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. As the only non-human primates that dare to live so far north, they are accustomed to frigid weather during the wintertime. To fight off the cold, they resort to two completely different approaches.
3 First, they make sure that they dress right. Before the chilly climate sets in, they start developing more fur. Their thicker winter outfits help to keep them warm when the temperature drops below 5 degrees Fahrenheit and snowfall reaches 3 feet deep. Sometimes, they will head to the nearest hot spring and give themselves a luxurious treat -- a bath!
