Bornean Slow Loris
Mainly solitary, the Bornean slow loris is one of two nocturnal primates that can be found in the Kinabatangan.
They are arboreal and found at an average height of 15m.
They can be located at night by the reddish eye shine observed when a torch light is shone directly at them.
The slow loris feeds on mostly insects, some small animals and pulpy fruit.
More recently it has been found that they are gumifors, feeding on the sap from trees
The Bornean slow loris is the smallest of the slow loris species, reddish brown to blonde yellow in colour with dark yellow/red coloured rings around the eyes. A stripe, less vibrant than other species, runs from the top of the head to the middle of the back or base of tail.
At present there are only 3 studies (including one currently underway at Danau Girang Field Centre carried out by Rachel Munds, Oxford Brookes University Masters student, and Ridzwan Ali a graduate from University of Malaysia, Sabah) and so little is known about the Bornean species.
