Examples of "slow_loris"
The Sunda slow loris is sympatric (shares its range) with the Bengal slow loris in Thailand and hybridisation has occurred.
"Nycticebus bengalensis", commonly known as the Bengal slow loris or northern slow loris, is a strepsirrhine primate in the slow loris genus, "Nycticebus". Formerly considered a subspecies of the Sunda slow loris ("N. coucang"), it was recognized as a distinct species in 2001 by taxonomist and primatologist Colin Groves. It is difficult to distinguish from the other species in its genus.
The Bengal slow loris is (shares its range) with the pygmy slow loris in southeast of China, Vietnam, and Laos. The Bengal slow loris is also sympatric with the Sunda slow loris on the southern peninsula of Thailand. In 2001, Groves reported the existence of hybrids between these two species in this region.
The Philippine slow loris ("Nycticebus menagensis") is a strepsirrhine primate and a species of slow loris that is native to the north and east coastal areas of the island of Borneo, as well as the Sulu Archipelago in the Philippines. The species was first named as the Bornean slow loris in 1892, but lumped into the widespread Sunda slow loris ("N. coucang") in 1952. However, it was promoted to full species status – again as the Bornean slow loris – based on molecular analysis in 2006. In 2013, two former subspecies of the Bornean slow loris were elevated to species status, and a new species—"N. kayan"—was recognized among the Bornean population.
The Bornean slow loris ("Nycticebus borneanus") is a strepsirrhine primate and a species of slow loris that is native to Borneo in Indonesia.
In addition to being smaller than the Bengal slow loris, the sympatric Sunda slow loris also differs in its coloring: it does not have the pale areas of the head, nape and shoulders, and its overall color is a tawny- or golden-brown. The pygmy slow loris ("N. pygmaeus") is much smaller, with a skull length less than . It also lacks the dark dorsal stripe of the Bengal slow loris, has dark brown fur, and longer ears.
The Javan slow loris weighs between and is similar in appearance to the largest slow loris, the Bengal slow loris. Its face and back are marked with a distinct stripe that runs over the crown and forks, leading to the eyes and ears, which leaves a white diamond pattern on the forehead. Its color is yellowish-gray. In contrast, its head, neck, and shoulders have cream hues. Like the Bornean slow loris ("N. menagensis"), it lacks the second incisor (I) in its dentition.
In his 1971 review of slow loris taxonomy, taxonomist and primatologist Colin Groves recognized the Javan slow loris as a subspecies, "Nycticebus coucang javanicus", of the Sunda slow loris ("N. coucang"), with "ornatus" as a synonym. It was first recognized as a distinct species again in a 2000 Indonesian field guide on primates by Jatna Supriatna and Edy Hendras Wahyono. In 2008, Groves and Ibnu Maryanto promoted it to species status, based on an analysis of cranial morphology and characteristics of pelage. Molecular analysis of DNA sequences of the D-loop and cytochrome "b" genes demonstrated it to be genetically distinct from other slow loris species; phylogenetically, it is sister to a clade containing the Bengal slow loris ("N. bengalensis") and the Sunda slow loris. Due to its close resemblance to neighboring slow loris species, even rescue centers have been known to misidentify it.
In 2009, primatologist James Thorn used environmental niche modelling in Indonesia to supplement the poor population data gathered to date to predict the remaining available habitat for slow lorises on the islands of Sumatra, Java, and Borneo. These estimates indicated that the Javan slow loris was the most threatened by habitat loss, followed by the Sunda slow loris from Sumatra. The Bornean slow loris was in a better situation since much of its range consists of low-risk areas. Both the Bengal slow loris and pygmy slow loris are found in more than 20 protected areas, although their populations are either low or insufficiently recorded.
The Javan slow loris ("Nycticebus javanicus") is a strepsirrhine primate and a species of slow loris native to the western and central portions of the island of Java, in Indonesia. Although originally described as a separate species, it was considered a subspecies of the Sunda slow loris ("N. coucang") for many years, until reassessments of its morphology and genetics in the 2000s resulted in its promotion to full species status. It is most closely related to the Sunda slow loris and the Bengal slow loris ("N. bengalensis"). The species has two forms, based on hair length and, to a lesser extent, coloration.
Five species are currently recognized. The Javan slow loris ("N. javanicus") is native to the Indonesian island of Java, whereas the Bornean slow loris ("N. menagensis") can be found on Borneo and nearby islands, including the Sulu Islands in the Philippines. The Sunda slow loris is found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra as well as Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. The other two species are found entirely on the mainland, with the Bengal slow loris ("N. bengalensis") native to Bangladesh, Cambodia, southern China, Northeast India, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam and the pygmy slow loris ("N. pygmaeus") found in Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and southern China.
In 2012, two taxonomic synonyms (formerly recognized as subspecies) of "N. menagensis"—"N. bancanus" and "N. borneanus"—were elevated to species status, and a new species—"N. kayan"—was also distinguished from the same. Rachel Munds, Anna Nekaris and Susan Ford based these taxonomic revisions on distinguishable facial markings. With that, the "N. menagensis" species complex that had been collectively known as the Bornean slow loris became four species: the Philippine slow loris ("N. menagensis")), the Bornean slow loris ("N. borneanus"), the Bangka slow loris ("N. bancanus"), and the Kayan River slow loris ("N. kayan").

"N. kayan" is a strepsirrhine primate, and species of slow loris (genus "Nycticebus") within the family Lorisidae. Museum specimens of this animal had previously been identified as the Bornean slow loris ("Nycticebus menagensis"), first described by the English naturalist Richard Lydekker in 1893 as "Lemur menagensis". In 1953, all of the slow lorises were lumped together into a single species, the Sunda slow loris ("Nycticebus coucang"). In 1971, that view was refined by distinguishing the pygmy slow loris ("N. pygmaeus") as a species, and by further identifying four subspecies, including "N. coucang menagensis", the Bornean slow loris. The Bornean slow loris was elevated to the species level (as "N. menagensis") in 2006, when molecular analysis showed it to be genetically distinct from "N. coucang".
The Bengal slow loris ("Nycticebus bengalensis") or northern slow loris is a strepsirrhine primate and a species of slow loris native to the Indian subcontinent and Indochina. Its geographic range is larger than that of any other slow loris species. Considered a subspecies of the Sunda slow loris ("N. coucang") until 2001, phylogenetic analysis suggests that the Bengal slow loris is most closely related to the Sunda slow loris. However, some individuals in both species have mitochondrial DNA sequences that resemble those of the other species, due to introgressive hybridization. It is the largest species of slow loris, measuring from head to tail and weighing between . Like other slow lorises, it has a wet nose (rhinarium), a round head, flat face, large eyes, small ears, a vestigial tail, and dense, woolly fur. The toxin it secretes from its brachial gland (a scent gland in its arm) differs chemically from that of other slow loris species and may be used to communicate information about sex, age, health, and social status.
Between 1800 and 1907, several other slow loris species were described, but in 1953 the primatologist William Charles Osman Hill, in his influential book, "Primates: Comparative Anatomy and Taxonomy", consolidated all the slow lorises into a single species, "N. coucang". In 1971 Colin Groves recognized the pygmy slow loris ("N. pygmaeus") as a separate species, and divided "N. coucang" into four subspecies. In 2001 Groves opined that there were three species ("N. coucang", "N. pygmaeus", and "N. bengalensis"), and that "N. coucang" itself had three subspecies ("Nycticebus coucang coucang", "N. c. menagensis", and "N. c. javanicus"). These three subspecies were promoted in 2010 to species status—the Sunda slow loris, the Javan slow loris ("N. javanicus") and Bornean slow loris ("N. menagensis"). Species differentiation was based largely on differences in morphology, such as size, fur color, and head markings. (At the end of 2012, the Bornean slow loris was itself divided into four distinct species.)
Primates in the park include macaques, gibbon, François's leaf monkey and slow loris.
Endangered animals, such as the Slow loris, are sometimes killed to make traditional medicines.
From 1971-1984, the poet was a co-editor of the "Slow Loris Press".
A langoustine and slow loris (named Tinkershrimp and Dutch, respectively) work as bodyguards for a king.
