493 - Slow Loris
Sunday, April 19, 2009





I would turn the sound off on this one... the giggling woman is obviously hot, but then some D bag next to her is talking in the lowest possible voice about some crap or other. Really ruins the moment.



"The slow lorises are three species of loris and are classified as the genus Nycticebus. These slow moving strepsirrhine primates range from Borneo and the southern Philippines in Southeast Asia, through Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia, India (North Eastern India, Bengal), southern China (Yunnan area) and Thailand. There are thought to be approximately one million[2] slow lorises in Asia, although they are hunted for their large eyes which are prized[3] for local traditional medicine. The Indonesian name, malu malu, can be translated as "shy one"."

"Slow lorises can produce a toxin which they mix with their saliva and use as protection against enemies. Mothers will lick this toxin onto their offspring before leaving them to search for food. The toxin is produced by glands on the insides of their elbows - the branchial region. The lorises lick or suck it into their mouths and deliver it when they bite. The toxin is not known to be fatal to humans, but causes a painful swelling. If the toxin does not deter a predator, the slow loris will often drop from the branch to the ground and roll into a protective ball."

    hmm he gets tickled near his glands though..I'd say the lorisel is scared out of its wits.
    On the other hand, I can't decide if there's any expression on its face.

    Is pretty animal, but I think no is good pet because the animal wants to be in his habitat.
