Galago crassicaudatus [syn. Otolemur crassicaudatus] - Greater Galago, aka the Thick-Tailed Bushbaby
Superficial musculature of the Bushbaby - This is the largest of the galagos and lorises, and a good generic example of the Galagidae.
I love bushbabies for how they raise their infants. The mother of course stays in the trees when her infant is a newborn so that it doesn’t get eaten by predators, but after just 6-8 days (while the infant is pretty much unable to move by itself and can barely see), the mom brings it with her while she feeds. I totally get the need to eat, but she carries it around in her mouth…and sets it down on a branch while she eats o_O There was a BBC show that had bushbabies on it, and two separate infants fell off the branch onto the ground….they both survived, but still! Every other primate has their baby hanging on like a good infant that doesn’t want to die! Why are you putting yours on a branch when they can barely move, but can just squirm enough to fall off?!
