Lorises are small primates related to the lemurs of Madagascar. The slender loris is a grayish-brown animal with a dark face and large eyes separated by a white stripe. They move through the forest with grace and deliberation, holding onto tree branches with their unusual toes. On each foot, the big toe opposes the other toes and creates a four-way grip of the branch. Slender lorises are found in forests of South Asia and Sri Lanka. They are threatened by deforestation.
