Episode 237 – Japanese Macaque: Pink Parka People

“…and today we’re talking about petite pink primates in plush parkas. But more on that later.”

In the highlands of Japan, one tufty monkey likes to season its food, play in the snow, and waylay unsuspecting people in its free time. It uses all of its simian smarts to quickly learn new behaviors and then use them against their human interlopers. But being a pink-faced eskimo in a cold climate means you need to use every means at your disposal to survive here in Life, Death, and Taxonomy.
