Species: nycticebus coucang
Location: Johor, Malaysia
Description: During the fruiting season, Slow Lorises near a village in Johor uses electricity cables to get from one Duku tree (lansium domesticum) to another. These sluggish mammals also feed on insects and other small animals, which makes them an omnivore. Unfortunately due to rapid habitat loss, illegal hunting and poaching for use of traditional medicine and for pet trades, the numbers of these primates have greatly dwindled.
