The Slender loris is commonly found in the tropical rainforests of Southern India and Sri Lanka. This small animal with a vestigial tail and extremely thin arms and legs is primarily known by the huge round eyes that dominate their face, which give it excellent night vision.

The Slender loris is an arboreal animal, spending most of its life in trees, hunting nocturnally for insects.
