Badende Affen

A young monkey jumps into a hot spring bath at the Jigokudani Yaenkoen, in Nagano Prefecture, Sunday 27 February 2005. More than 200 Japanese macaques live freely in this area that is covered by snow one third of the year. As a habit, they come down from the mountains where they spend the night and bath during the day. EPA/FRANCK ROBICHON +++(c) dpa – Bildfunk+++
