Slow lorises are found in Southeast Asia and bordering areas. They lead a nocturnal lifestyle and are omnivores; eating small animals, fruit, tree gum and other vegetation. The hands and feet of slow lorises have several adaptations that give them a pincer-like grip and enable them to grasp branches for long periods of time. They have a toxic bite; a trait rare among mammals. The toxin is obtained by licking a gland on their arm, and the secretion is activated by their saliva. Their toxic bite is a deterrent to predators, and the toxin is also applied to the fur during grooming as a form of protection for their infants. Slow lorises move slowly and deliberately, making little or no noise, and when threatened, they stop moving and remain motionless. Their only documented predators, apart from humans who hunt them to use them in traditional medicine for their perceived abilities to cure wounds and ward off evil spirits, include snakes, hawk-eagles and orangutans. Little is known about their social structure, but they are known to communicate by scent marking. The Slow loris is now considered either Vulnerable or Endangered and have a high risk conservation status.
