Family Lorisidae (Primate)
These are by far the worst pictures I have ever posted but as they only come out at night to feed and I did not want the flash to hurt their eyes, these enhanced pictures are the best I can do in order to show them to you. It is a case of these or nothing. :)
Bushbabies are easily tamed and come readily to feeding platforms such as this.
They are found even in town areas where they will nest in a hole of a tree or in the roof of a house.
They prefer eating insects but will also eat fruit and the gum of certain trees.
There are two species of Bushbabies found here, this is the Lesser Bushbaby with a thin tail and the Greater or Thick-tailed Bushbaby found in our coastal regions.
They are the cutest little things with a body length in adults reaching only about 6 inches. People have tried to keep them as pests but are found to be not suitable because they sleep the whole day through so cannot be played with.
