Caption

Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) foraging in a snow-covered area. The young (one at centre left) are carried by their mother in their first year. This primate has the northernmost range of any monkey, inhabiting the islands of Japan. In winter, temperatures can fall to minus 5 degrees Celsius and the monkey warms itself by bathing in hot springs. They usually live in groups of around 100 individuals. Groups have a strict social hierarchy, being led by adult males. The Japanese macaque (or Japanese snow monkey) feeds on leaves and ripe fruits. In the winter it may resort to eating buds and even tree bark. Photographed in Nagano, Japan in January.
