    Behavior of the Slow Loris All Lorises are nocturnal. They are most active at night, and sleep during the day. They move like a sloth, using all four legs and walking slowly, but they do not always hang upside down. Most Slow Loris species are arboreal, and spend the majority of their time in the trees.

    Slow lorises are native to Southeast Asia, specifically Vietnam (east of the Mekong River), eastern Cambodia, Laos and the Yunnan province in the south of China. They live in the branches of bamboo and hardwood forests, usually sleeping during the day in crevices or hollows. Lorises are nocturnal, and are considered opportunistic hunters.

    The pygmy slow loris has a short, dense, wooly coat that varies between light brownish to deep reddish brown, with a white chest and belly, and light-colored outlines on its face. Its tail is short to nonexistent, but its dexterous hands (with opposable thumbs) and feet make climbing and hanging around in trees a breeze.

    Clever climbers. Slow lorises are excellent climbers with incredibly strong hands and feet. When hunting insects, slow lorises will use their hind legs to grip onto a tree branch and then lunge forward, catching their prey between both hands.
