About this book

Japan's sole monkey - the Japanese macaque - lives both in subtropical lowlands and in sub alpine regions. The animals living in the Japanese Alps, where snow blankets the ground for most of the winter, are affectionately called snow monkeys and have become a great tourist attraction. Here, macaques enjoy warming up in a natural hot pool. In this enchanting book, Heather Angel unravels how these monkeys live in troops: showing them in different seasons bathing and drinking in the hot pool, grooming, feeding, youngsters playing with snowballs and heart-warming shots of newborns with their mothers.

"Wildlife Monographs" is a series of full-colour books led by stunning photographic images with fresh, informative and vivid new text charting wild animals on their home terrain.
