Slow Loris

An anonymous reader posted this video in a comment box a little while ago, and I must say, it is pure delight. Who knew slow loris babies love to be tickled? The real question is: who knew an animal called a slow loris even existed? The wonder of it all. And the possibilities.

i have watched this so many times. absolutely amazing and delightful. he is such a cute fellow, but other facts about slow lorises include: 1) they are apparently carnivorous and tend to shred up the meat they eat (gross), 2) they have a toxic bite, and store the toxin in their elbows (strange), and 3) they are often hunted for their eyes, which are believed to have magical properties. whoa. still, i love how much he loves being tickled.
