Slow Loris

# 27

This slow loris magnet was purchased somewhere in Kundasang, Sabah; one of the stops we made along the way between Kundasang and Kota Kinabalu. It was a wonderful trip, with my parents in law, Izwan's bro Adif, and my niece and nephew.
Like all lorises, slow lorises are nocturnal and arboreal animals that prefer the tops of the trees. Also, they have slow, deliberate movements and a powerful grasp that makes them very difficult to remove from branches. They live as solitaries or in small family groups, and mark their territory with urine.
