Looks like a typical rush hour commuter train crowd to me.

Clever monkeys using each other's body heat. Makes perfect sense. They always find a way. Agreed about the concrete though. Should be a clay area with pebbles or something.

Reminds me of the floor in my apartment basically built onto of a concrete pad. Bloody freezing.

All of them are females monkey and babies Now put a mature male monkey in the cage with them. The Male would be lucky live 5 minutes.

Every winter many wild monkeys and other animals are starving to death because of lately not enough food on mountains. Monkeys. boars, bears, deer sometimes come down to village/town to search food before winter. Zoo monkeys are kinda lucky because never starving to death in there.

Tonosho Zoo must close. And these poor beautiful monkeys liberated to live in their natural home.

There are rocks, pebbles, and soil in there. Not all concrete floor.

Concrete floor & walls, big open wall for the wind, lovely

That concrete floor mimics the natural environment and ensures any body heat is sucked strait out of the body. But what do I know, I don’t have a Masters or a Degree on animal care, like the zoo staff, management. I imagine they will drag dead monkeys with a hook out of their cage regularly.

Monkeys are okay. Mountain (wild) monkeys do same thing during winter. Zoos give them wood fire or hot both sometimes.

Poor little guys..

BTW, Awaji Island Monkey Center has a great live stream for those who enjoy monkey watching.

Well that seems like the zoo has some care and concern about its captive inmates?
