The Red Slender Loris is a little monkey with red eyes that are pretty large, ears that are rounded, and limbs and legs that are long and narrow. Its look is rather peculiar. Because of its huge eyes, which are set in a forward-facing position, it has outstanding night vision and great depth awareness.
It is adept at using both its hands and feet, and both are well suited to climbing among the trees that make up its natural environment. They have opposable great toes on both feet, which gives them a grasp similar to that of a pincer.
This incredible animal is endemic to only the southwest part of Sri Lanka.
