Curious baby Japanese Snow Monkey
Photographer: Laurie Friedman
Location: Japan
Story: 
On a Winter trip to Japan, we visited the place where Japanese Snow Monkeys have learned to use natural hot springs to stay warm. As no food is allowed in the area, the monkeys pay no attention to their human visitors, and it is possible to get close to the animals and observe their behavior.
