Interesting about Japanese macaques

Japanese macaques or "snow monkeys" are the northernmost of the primates. They are perfectly adapted to the climate of northern Japan, where there are frosts and heavy snowfall, due to warm fur and high intelligence. They are able to survive at a temperature of −15 °C, spending most of the winter in hot springs - natural healing baths. These monkeys are able to quickly learn skills from each other. Recent studies of Japanese macaques have shown that they have "dialects" similar to humans.

In Mykolaiv Zoo everyone can see the group of Japanese macaques right now as they are kept in open-air enclosures. Macaques have an extremely interesting behavior - try to watch how the baby plays, how mothers take care of their children, how an angry father protects his family.
