slow loris... (adorable animal that should not, NOT be kept as a pet..the capture and sale of these animals is inhumane)

Sadly the Slow Loris is becoming quite rare in the wild due to it being traded as a pet. These beautiful nocturnal creatures are not suitable pets, please let them be free.

Bell, the slow loris

© Sham Jolimie Slow lorises are victims of the illegal pet trade, superstition and sadly of their own cuteness. Their sharp teeth are removed before they are sold. Their body parts are used in traditional medicine.

Cute animals that could kill you- Don’t let their look fool you!

Although Slow Loris are popular in the illegal pet trade, not everyone is aware of the poison they keep in the sides of their elbows. When threatened, they release it which can lead to a death by anaphylactic shock.

Slender loris: "This miniature, saucer-eyed primate appears to be wearing permanent jam-jar-bottom spectacles. It gets its name, though, from its exceptionally long, thin limbs. Its soft thick fur is grey to reddish-brown on top and whitish-grey below." 100 Animals To See Before They Die www.bradtguides.com
