Otolemur – Greater galagos

The weight of leg muscles makes up 25% of the overall body mass; can jump 6 to 9 times better than a frog

Species of this occasionally urban-swelling genus are also commonly known as thick-tailed bushbabies.

In 1979, genus Otolemur was separated from the genus Galago, and in 1986, greater galago was added to this genus. Sometimes, the silvery greater galago is referred to as a separated species from the brown greater galago. The use of classification by vocalization is helpful as a tool in understanding and classification of these species.
