Bush Babies, also known as Galagos, are primates found in Africa. They are mostly active at night, so they have very large eyes to help them see in the dark.

  • History:

    The common name “Bush Baby” is believed to come from the animal’s cries, which can sound like a baby crying. It may also come from the animal’s appearance, as its large eyes and ears make it appear quite childlike.

    Bush Babies are primitive primates related to the lorises. They have very strong leg muscles that allow them to jump well over six feet.

    Almost all Bush Baby species are considered “Least Concern” by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), meaning there is no imminent threat of extinction. However, one species, the Rondo Dwarf Galago, is listed as “Critically Endangered” as it is only found in patches of forest that are in danger of being destroyed.
