My mind & eyes immediately warped slow loris into something obscene. The monkey is cute though.

FTFA: Uniquely among primates, they have a toxic bite, belying their appearance.

WTF? "We were surprised because whenever a brand new species is discovered, we assumed we'd be able to tell if it was toxic by just looking at it!"

ftfa: Animals that are active by night often rely less on visual clues, and can therefore appear more similar to one another.

For example, most of them suck at rebus puzzles.

Oooh, so Mother Nature needs a favor?! Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys! Nature started the fight for survival, and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese.

/Excellent

Well once Gladys keeled over, everyone dropped their platypus and ran to the med tent.

They are the only primates with a toxic bite, secreting the toxin from glands in their elbows.

Slow lorises lick this toxin, and mix it with their saliva. They then use it when they bite, or to coat the fur of their offspring, possibly as a way to deter predators from attacking their young.


Weird.

What's more impressive, it's a primate that can get its elbows into its mouth.

Dude is kind of cute, in a way that would likely get me some action with my girlfriend if I were to bring one home.
