The Japanese macaque (/məˈkɑːk/;[2] Macaca fuscata), is a terrestrial Old World monkey species native to Japan. It is also sometimes known as the snow monkey.. In Japan, the species is known as Nihonzaru (Nihon "Japan" + saru "monkey") to distinguish it from other primates, but the Japanese macaque is very familiar in Japan, so when Japanese people simply say saru, they usually have in mind the Japanese macaque.

The Japanese macaque historically known as saru ("monkey"), but now known as Nihonzaru to distinguish it from other primates, is a terrestrial Old World monkey species native to Japan. It is also sometimes known as the snow monkey because it lives in areas where snow covers the ground for months each year — no primate, with the exception of humans, is more northern-living, nor lives in a colder climate. Individuals have brown-grey fur, red faces, and short tails. There are two subspecies.

The Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) has gray to light-brown fur, is feet long, and has a hairless red face. These monkeys wash sweet potatoes in water and roll snowballs. Candidate for: Hibagon.
