The snow monkey, or “Japanese macaque,” is the most northerly living non-human primate on Earth, residing in the mountains of the Japanese Honshu regions. Although the snow monkey is most commonly known for its frequent visits to volcanic hot springs, such as outside the city of Nagano, it can survive in severe winter temperatures as cold 5° F. A small population of free-range snow monkeys also lives in the state of Texas, in the United States, but it is the only population outside of the monkey’s native Japan. This group was brought overseas in 1972.
The snow monkey has brown to gray fur, with a red face and bottom, and a short, stubby tail. It lives in multi-male and multi-female social groups with very rigid hierarchies in which infants are born into the social rank of their mothers. The snow monkey is famous for washing its food before eating.
