Female Japanese Snow Monkeys Enjoy Spa Days To Relieve Stress Just Like Us

Seriously this video is ADORABLE but also so interesting! These Snow Monkeys will visit their hot springs in the monkey park to not only warm up from the cold but to reduce the stress hormone that is found in female snow monkeys.  It's literally like taking a spa day! It was obvious to researchers that monkeys had far less stress hormones after visiting the hot springs, meaning they were doing it partly because it has a calming effect on them. It makes sense, I mean who doesn't like to soak in a warm tub?
