What they look like
The slender loris gets its name from having thin arms and legs. They have gigantic saucer-like brown eyes that dominate their faces and a short second digit and toe that they use to grasp branches like a thumb.
These lorises climb extremely slowly and cautiously along branches to avoid attracting the attention of predators or alerting their insect prey. Lorises approach their prey silently suddenly grabbing it with one or both hands.
What they eat
Insects, small reptiles, birds and eggs.
Forest and open woodland.
Where they live
Southern India and Sri Lanka.
At the slightest sound or movement the loris freezes and stays perfectly still until danger has passed.
