Slow lorises are nocturnal primates native to Southeast Asia. They have round heads, large eyes, a narrow snout, and different coloration patterns, according to Wikipedia. They have a pincer-like grip so they can hold onto tree branches for an extended time.
Their bite is toxic and serves as a deterrent to predators.
When mothers lick their babies, the poison coats the fur to keep the babies safe.
Eight slow lorises were packed into two different boxes.
They had been sold to someone living in Indonesia.
In their cages, they had a few scraps of food but no water.
Luckily, the police arrived and arrested the man who had sold the slow lorises before they were shipped out.
These endangered animals are being removed to the wild to be sold as pets.
