The slow loris is a type of primate. It may appear adorable (it is) but it also has a toxic bite formed by licking a gland in their arm that contains a secretion that mixes with their saliva. Their toxins can be severe to predators. It is also used in grooming the fur of their infants as a form of protection. This beautiful and curious species is sadly classified as "Endangered" on the IUCN Red List.
