ARS_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_300x250

This precious little guy was rescued in Vietnam after he was found injured. This species of loris is endangered. He is a big fan of watermelon and VERY cute. But don’t be fooled, while this mammal is extremely adorable, it can also be quite volatile. If scared, it can release a chemical toxin that if mixed with saliva, can be poisonous. Because of their size, they are a popular target for predators. This toxin does offer some protection, thankfully.
