Possibly the Cutest Animal Ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The slender loris is about the size of a chipmunk, with long, pencil thin arms and legs. It is between 15-25 cm long and is found in the rainforests of Southern India and Sri Lanka.

I just want to take it home and cuddle it!!!!!!

It's got big eyes because it's nocturnal.

I don't think one is allowed to keep them as pets Lord G - certainly not here in the UK. If you do get one let me know!!!

CW they may have big eyes due to being nocturnal but it still makes them look just GORGEOUS!!!!

Hi, just letting you know these animals are on the endangered list, and extremely threatened in part because of the pet trade. Which is illegal and unethical. Although you may not have known this when inquiring, and may be reasonable enough to realise afterward what a terrible terrible thing it would be to take one of these animals as a pet, I would urge you that in the case of many animals, and indeed almost ALL primates (no matter how cute) the pet trade is a major contributor to their death whether it be the many that die at the hands of the traders/captors themselves (yes, for every animal that reaches you, way more- an almost always their parents, have died or been murdered in the most terrible of ways). I would urge you to understand that this is the case with many many animals, not just the slender loris. Please think about these things before you further their misery, they are not toys for human amusement. If you truely think they are cute, and adorable and love them that much - you will leave them alone. Get involved with their conservation, not their extinction.

Slender Loris's are very cute, but there not for pets.Imagine if a big giant came into your home, and took you, and looked after you for about a week.Just because they are adorable, and you want one as a pet,just think wat they wood think of right now.They wood hate only being cared of for 2 weeks.Then wat most(all) of us would do is just leave them be in there cage, day and night, until they die because we didnt give care to them.
