Japanese macaques, also called snow monkeys, live farther north than any other non-human primates. Their thick coats help them survive the frigid temperatures of central Japan’s highlands. But when the mercury really plummets, they go to plan B: hot-tubbing in the region’s many thermal springs.

日本短尾猿,又名雪猴,比其它非人灵长类动物住得都靠北。它们厚厚的皮毛帮助它们在日本中部高地寒冷的气温中生存下来。但当温度急剧下降时,他们还有备用方案:在这一地区众多的温泉里洗个热水澡。
