At The Jigokudani Yaen-koen park in Japan, native snow monkeys or Japanese macaques thrive in the cold snow covered environment. When the snow gets a little too cold though, the monkeys have an incredible form of heat and relaxation at their disposal -- hot springs peppering the valleys of the park. In the photos above you can see just how relaxed the monkeys are in their natural hot tub, many of them bathing with eyes closed. Click through to see more extraordinary photos!
