Slow Loris News Archive
When it comes to internet videos, there is no class of video better than "_______ sees snow for the first time."
Insert 'puppy,' 'cat' or 'slow loris' in that sentence and you've got our attention.
Like with this video!!
A cute cat named Sophie lives in Birmingham, Alabama, so it'd be expected that cat might go its entire life without ever seeing a single flake of snow.
Until now! (Most likely thanks to The Day After Tomorrow and 2012 style weather events).
This is so super cute! We love how cautiously she approaches the snow. She has no idea what it is!
Then, once she finally get into it, she realizes the incredible potential snow has as a plaything.
The cuteness only gets better from here on. Check out the video AFTER THE JUMP!!
Congrats to Akron Zoo in Ohio!
They've got a brand new baby Pygmy Slow Loris and he's just about the cutest thing EVER!
The baby male was born August 21st and only weighed under an ounce!!

Turns out, this was absolutely no bueno for the RiRi and her crew because TWO people who allowed her to pose with the loris ended up getting arrested from the pic! A district police chief in Phuket conirmed:
El Paso Zoo better crack the bubbly! It's time to celebrate!
The zoo just had its first ever Pygmy Slow Lorises born!
Wanna know the best part??
This new monkey, which is part of the slow loris family, may look like a dreamy little pet, but it actually has a bite that can kill you!!
The monkey was discovered in the Philippines and Borneo by a crew led by Oxford Brookes University professor, Anna Nekaris.
And after the discovery was made, researchers marked it as the new species, Nycticebus Kayan, and Anna noted:
