Snow Monkey Spa (video)

High in the snow covered mountains of Honshu in Japan is a thermal spring with water at a blissful 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Itís called Monkey Park and its users are all macaques or Snow Monkeys.

But membership in this spa is pretty exclusive. Snow monkeys are a matriarchal society and the only ones allowed in the spa are females and their children. A male guards the “door.” If you are a female,

itís sheer bliss. Watch their faces and see for yourself.

Russell R........It is a survival mechanism & man has genetically
inheirited the behavior. But, the problem with man is there are
seven billion of us and far fewer of these highly intelligent
animals. The world would be a better place for sure if the
population numbers were reversed.

Wherever you are the once was a forest.
Plant & protect Danny's trees for life..
Trees are the lungs of the earth.

I was beginning to enjoy them until I watched the second video and seen, like man, the class division between those that " have" and the "have nots." I thought that was only a human quality

Shame the video has now gone, but how interesting that the male watches the door and lets all females and bubs enjoy sacred girl time!
