Jigokudani Yaen-Koen, in Nagano of Japan, is a wild snow monkey park. It is the only place in the world where wild monkeys bathe in natural hot springs. Every morning, wild monkeys get down from steep cliffs to the river valley where they spend the daytime, then go back to the woods where they stay at night. The winter is very cold there, therefore the monkeys like to take bath in the natural hot springs for warm. Their social activities are very interesting to see there. This photo shows the love between a naughty baby monkey and its mom.
