Galago alleni -Bioko Allen’s Bushbaby
This lesser bushbaby is a member of the Galagidae family, and is closely related to the greater galagos and lorises. Unlike lorises, galagos are very nimble and quick, and hunt insects using speed, rather than stealth. Physiologically, however, they’ve very similar. One of the primary adaptations of the galagos is the flattened discs on the hands and feet, which allow for much easier grip of tree limbs.
The huge eyes facilitate nighttime foraging in deep forests, and the consumption of human souls.
