The pygmy slow loris occurs in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia & the Yunnan Province of China. My favourite animal & sadly endangered. Far too many ignorant people just see them as cute & get them as pets. They are toxic & nocturnal. Their habitat is being destroyed. They are hunted for food, traditional medicine and the pet trade. Hunting & capture of the pygmy loris is illegal in Cambodia, China & Vietnam, although enforcement of these laws is lacking and the penalties are too low to deter others.
