今日小常识

Japanese macaques, or 'snow monkeys', are highly social animals, with a complex set of relationships between each other. Entrance to the thermal hot springs, which can reach over 40 degrees centigrade, depends upon the social position of the monkey. Only the highest-ranking females and their infants are allowed in.

日本猕猴,又称“雪猴”,是高度群居动物,相互之间的关系极为复杂。能否或如何进入这个高达摄氏40度的温泉池塘完全取决于猴子的社会地位,只有地位最高的母猴以及幼子们可获准进入温泉泡汤。
