Indonesian Sanctuary Helps To Save The Slow Loris From Extinction

BOGOR, INDONESIA - FEBRUARY 27: A slow loris is treated by vets at a sanctuary for the endangered animals which have been confiscated from individuals or markets which illegally sell them as pets on February 27, 2014 in Bogor, Indonesia. The Indonesian branch of International Animal Rescue, Yayasan YIARI, has a sanctuary in the mountains outside the city of Bogor with over two hundred confiscated slow loris' which are popular as pets because of their enormous eyes and fluffy fur, but not only are they illegal, they are also the only known mammal with a venomous bite, so the traders clip or crush their teeth before selling which causes ill health. Many of the confiscated animals must be treated before they are released to the wild. (Photo by Ed Wray/Getty Images)
