Bloody lorises!!


Why on earth are lorises the only venomous primates? Well they might use it to challenge each other! Male lorises fiercely pursue females, and many lorises have horribly healed scars and especially head and finger wounds, but rarely have we seen a fresh one to see just how it, well, festers (yuck!). Well, just in time for Halloween, our Guntur seems to have been fighting for his lady Tereh (yes I know you thought he was ‘married’ to Ena – he is not the gentleman you thought him) and slow loris researcher superstar Jo Rode with her Eagle eye noted his bloody toe! We will let you know how it heals, and what toll Guntur’s opponent’s venom may have taken on his lovely toe!
