Elusive primate filmed first time in 20 years

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An elusive and adorable tiny primate weighing just 3.5 ounces has been captured on camera for the first time in nearly 20 years — as it battles extinction.

Taita mountain dwarf galagos — which have their homes in the Taita Hills of south-east Kenya — live in relatively cool mountain-side forests in small family groups.

They have distinctive calls which they use to communicate and that experts use to distinguish them from other dwarf galago species, all of which look similar. 

Galagos are also known as 'bush babies'. 

The first recorded encounter with a Taita mountain dwarf galago was reported back in 2002, but no sightings of the elusive creature had been made since then.
