    1 Slow Loris on Sun Dec 15, 2013 8:30 pm

    Slow Loris

    The slow loris is Found mostly in South and Southeast Asia. Believe it or not these cute animals are endangered and may not be around much longer if we do not help them.


    "Sunda slow lorises mainly inhabit primary and secondary tropical lowland forests. They have also been found in each of the following habitats: tropical evergreen and semi-evergreen forests, seasonal wet evergreen forests, dry evergreen forests, mixed deciduous tropical forests, sub-tropical broadleaf hill forests, swamp forests, savannahs, montane and submontane forests, shrub forests, peat swamps and hardwood forests,

    as well as degraded habitats such as highly disturbed forests, secondary forests, disturbed primary forests and logged forests."(Barrett, 1981; Choudhury, 1992; Duckworth, 1994; Huynh, 1998; Nekaris, et al., 2008; Wiens, et al., 2006)


    Physical information

    Length: 27 to 38 centimeters.
    Weight: 599 to 685 grams.

    They have very large eyes caused by their nocturnal instinct. The usually have a mostly white stripe between their eyes.


    In the wild this creature has a lifespan of approximately 20 years. In captivity they usually live for 25.8 years.


    "Sunda slow lorises move slowly through trees on all four limbs, typically with three limbs attached to support at any given time. Their locomotion is similar to crawling. They move with little noise or change in speed. At times they may hang below a branch by one or both feet for long periods. In captivity, movement includes quadrupedal locomotion (24%), climbing (21%), suspension (including cantilevering) (29%), bridging (23%) and other forms of locomotion (3%)." (Erhlich and Musicant, 1977; Gebo, 1987; Ishida, et al., 1986; Rigel, 2004; Wiens, 2002)

    "Sunda slow lorises are mainly solitary, spending only 8% of their active time near other individuals. In cases of home range overlap spatial groups form, usually consisting of one male, one female and 1 to 3 younger individuals. Interactions among spatial groups are mainly positive: allogrooming, following, pant-growling and click-calling are all observed. Despite this, only 3% of active time is spent within the spatial group. This evidence may suggest a monogamous social system, though polyandrous activity has been observed."(Gron, 2013; Wiens and Zitzmann, 2003; Wiens, 2002)
