Pictured:  Japanese Macaque monkeys in the spring.<br />

An adorable baby Japanese macaque monkey practices his yoga while taking a hot soak in a natural thermal bath.  The youngster, who is just two years old, was one of around 30 monkeys enjoying the warmth of the pools and warms up his muscles with a stretch in the water.<br />
<br />
Indeed, he was so flexible he could get his foot to his mouth to entertain the onlookers with his unique behaviour.  The Japanese macaque monkeys - also known as snow monkeys - are the most northern primates living in the world.<br />
<br />
Their amazing behaviour was witnessed at the Jigokudani Yean-Koen National Park near Nagano in Japan by wildlife photographer Anup Shah and his wife Fiona Rogers.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
