Japanese Macaque

Macaca fuscata


Japanese Macaques spotted near Suzuka Falls, in Niigata Prefecture, Japan. Photo quality is quite poor since the photo was taken during a rain storm, and I was trying to capture the moment quickly as they scampered across a road and vanished into the forest.


These are the same species as the famous "Snow Monkeys" that sit in the hot springs in Japan during the winter. I have a spotting like this located here
