Slow lorises have a #toxic bite, a trait rare among mammals and unique to #lorisid #primates. The toxin is produced by licking a gland on their arm, and the secretion mixes with its saliva to activate it. 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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slow_loris

New Loris!

A new species of Slow Loris has been discovered in Borneo. Slow Loris Should NEVER be kept as a pet !

Crowned Lemur - These are primates, not marsupials... or plushies. Though this one could pass for a stuffed animal with a bow in it's hair!

Crowned lemur on branch II by Tambako - oh look, he IS wearing a little golden crown! The varieties in nature are neverending.

The JAVAN SLOW LORIS is found only on the Indonesian island of Java in the western and central regions. It lives in bamboo forests, mangroves and plantations. To move through the trees that it lives in, it needs connections between trees, such as those provided by vines. There has been a decline of at least 80% of the population over the last 24 years. (2013)

Endangered Species: Javan Slow Loris ("Gremlins of the Jungle"). Found in Western and Central Java (Indonesia). Numbers are diminishing due to illegal pet trading.

Hmm, chinchilla?  Nope.  Probably a kinkajou (sp?)

"Wombat - Native only to Australia, wombats are solitary, marsupials who feed mostly on grass and roots." That ain't a wombat! That's a possum!
