Monkey Fact Monday

Lets start the week off with some fun Monkey Facts!

The Japanese Snow Monkey is a very interesting type of monkey. Of course if you couldn’t tell, they come from Japan. Hehe! You might also know these monkeys by the name of ‘Japanese Macaque’.

I find these monkeys funny because they orginated in Japan, but live in many places in Texas, United States! Crazy right? 😀

If you haven’t seen these monkeys before, check out the picture below, they are just adorable!

As you can see from the beautiful picture, Japanese Snow Monkeys have red faces, and a super-warm coat for the winter. Another thing this photo unfortunately didn’t capture was their abnormally short tails. It’s not so common for a monkey to have a short tail, but not for these monkeys! 😀

Hope you enjoyed this week’s Monkey Fact Monday! Let us know your thoughts on these primates. ^.^
