In scientists threw soy beans into a hot spring in Japan.

    The animal I have chosen to study is the Japanese macaque, more commonly known as the Japanese snow monkey. Sir David Attenborough recently described the macaque as “one of the most successful and versatile of all primates”, commending its capacity to be “versatile, resilient, enterprising, tough and capable of surviving in extreme conditions”. Japanese macaques have short stumps for tails that average  mm in males and  mm in females. The macaque has a pinkish face and posterior. The rest of its body is covered in brown, greyish, or yellowish hair. The coat of the macaque is well-adapted to the cold and its thickness increases as temperaure decreases. The macaque.

The tiny species of monkey faces threats from habitat destruction for land development and plantations, hunting, and killing for sport. Japanese macaques (aka “snow monkeys”) are one of 22 species of macaques. Macaques cover a greater latitudinal range than any other genus of non-human primates, and Japanese macaques specifically occupy the northernmost range of any wild primate (excluding us, of course).
