This wide-eyed and cute slow loris species lives in areas such as lowland forest, sub-montane forest, and montane forest in the Ulu Masen (Kasia et al. 2011). A key threat to the Sumatran Slow Loris is habitat loss (Kasia et al. 2011). They are easy to catch when forest is converted to palm oil and other crops.
The #Sumatran #SlowLoris is endangered on @IUCNredlist due to #palmoil #deforestation and the pet trade. Help them with a #Boycott4Wildlife on brands destroying their rainforest home. Find out moreTweet
