A newly introduced bill called the #CaptivePrimateSafetyAct  (CPSA), that’s supported by Animal Welfare Institute (@awionline ), addresses the cruel and dangerous problem of pet primate ownership in the #UnitedStates . Sponsored by Reps. @repblumenauer (D-OR) and @repbrianfitz (R-PA), this bill would amend the #LaceyAct to prohibit interstate commerce in nonhuman primates (including #apes , #monkeys , #lemurs , and #lorises ) for the exotic #pettrade .🙏🐵 - “The suffering pet primates endure is alarming,” said Cathy Liss, President of AWI in a statement. “They are often forcibly removed from their mothers soon after birth, spend their lives isolated in small cages and endure unnecessary, painful procedures such as tooth extraction. The Captive Primate Safety Act is urgently needed to prevent these animals from entering the inhumane interstate pet trade.” - Conservative estimates suggest that there are at least 15,000 primates kept as pets in the United States. 💔🦍🐵🚫 #EndThePetTrade - - READ MORE: 🌍👉WorldAnimalNews.com @worldanimalnews_ @peace_4animals #WorldAnimalNews

Lorises are known in vernacular terms as "Malu malu", meaning shy one. When spotted, they raise their arms above their head to cover their face. Research suggests lorises actually perform this behavior to imitate cobras, deterring predators.

From a year ago: 5 Slow Lorises Are Released Back Into The Wild. This is a #repost from @international_animal_rescue via @PhotoAroundApp Our team has #released five #slow #lorises back into the #wild . Bulan, Lana, Honey, Jejes and John will be monitored by a team on the ground, who will work by night and sleep by day in order to keep up with the slow lorises nocturnal sleeping pattern. Monitoring after the release is essential to ensure the released slow lorises are thriving in their natural #environment . The #video above shows one of the lorises exploring its new surroundings. It is #incredible to watch!

Another Sunday with our Loris friends! They don’t live in groups like many other primates, but that doesn’t mean they don’t hang out with each other on occasion! Take a cue from these two, and give yourself some self love today! ♥️#littlefirefaceproject #lorises #keepwildanimalswild #sundayselfcare
#littlefirefaceproject what cuter face can we remember today than our beautiful Endor, the last daughter of lovely Ena. Endor dispersed out of our study area but we hope that she is having her own babies now! #lorises #slowloris #endor
Get yourself one of these cute little guys for your car keys, house keys, or dungeon keys! Any kind except for piano keys because that doesn’t make sense. Find them on the #littlefirefaceproject Etsy shop!! (Link in bio) #etsythursday #lorises #ohyeah
#factfriday back in the 1970s, researchers thought #lorises were #solitary but plenty of work has shown this is simply not true. That is why collecting social behaviour data is so important as you can see in this edition of our #slowloris #ethogram ! #littlefirefaceproject #wildandfree #slowlife edited by @wantarniwan
There’s been a lot of press of late to do with #wildlife #selfies and what is and is not ok. Many #tourism establishments and individuals around the world make money from exploiting wildlife - whether it’s drugged-up #tigers in #Thailand or dressed-up #lorises in #Indonesia . Don’t support this trade - it’s plain #animalcruelty and leads to species becoming even more endangered. The more people who reject this type of exploitation, the less money people will make, the more likely they’ll stop doing it. If a wild animal just so happens to pop up behind you and it’s safe for you and them to take a quick pic, like Hannah from our team did with this gorgeous #humpbackwhale then no one, human or animal, is coming to any harm. Know when it is and is not ok.
Instagram makes the quality suck. This Anetta, a new character, and part of a species my friend @dragonlova.art created called Lorises (I think). She’s a pretty cool character, I’ll make a ref of her soon. #drawing #oc #closedspecies #lorises
It’s this babe’s bachelorette weekend! About to revert to college behavior 😏Can’t wait to kiss you 😘 #bachelorette #college #lorises 🎉🎉
Don't be fooled by those big brown eyes. ... Lorises have toxic glands hidden on their elbows which they lick to lace their bites with poison, but it's only dangerous to humans if the victim is allergic to the toxin 👀 #magazine #loungemagazine #animals #nature #cute #toxic #toxicanimals #lorises #facts #animalsfacts

Happy international #macaque week! In so many places where there are #lorises , there are these very interesting and social #primates , and many of our good friends have projects dedicated to these primates, such as @jakartaanimalaidnetwork Over the years, our team has studied many species of macaques across Asia, including for several years in Sri Lanka, where these beautiful toque macaques are found (lovely photo by Gehan de Silva!). Here is just one of our open access macaque studies to celebrate this week of awareness! http://www.mdpi.com/2076-2615/3/1/45/htm #notapet #notaperformer #wildandfree #srilanka
This rescued Slow loris arrived in February and he is successfully recovering from a amputation. For obvious reasons we called him Captain Hook, but the important thing is that he is doing really well. Hook was moved from the clinic to an outside enclosure this week where we keep a close eye on him to monitor his climbing skills and overall behaviour. Javan Slow #lorisses (Nycticebus #javanicus ) are listed as Critically Endangered on the #IUCN redlist. The trade is still very harsh but we have been able to rescue many of them from the #illegaltrade . Want to help these magnificent animals with a proper place to stay and appropriate care?

NOT A PET. Captive bred slow loris, teeth and toxic glands intact. Primates requite a ton of care, time and affection and he doesn't belong to me. . Sorry Mogwai, i had to turn you into a meme 😅 and yes freehandling is handling a venomous animal without protection- barehanded. Which i do often but not daily (duh). My life, my choices kinda thing. It won't affect the venomous hobby if one day i get bit. Dunno why so many people can't just mind their own business 🙃 i'm pretty sure there's more to life than whining about a 20 year old's ig 😂 side notes: i never say my snakes are tame, i never say what i do is cool, i never say you should follow and do what i do. Let's keep it real. Sorry for a mini rant :)
Great first afternoon with my baby loris 💕👯 #lorises #Huntsville @kristenconner
My heartttttt #lorises
Dear Animals, I'm sorry for our cruelty towards you, we view you as property to be owned or to make money from, your well being is secondary to our monetary fulfilment. Because your skills & abilities are different to ours we don't value your feelings. We're born with compassion towards you understanding your consciousness as our own, but from an early age we're taught you're different/inferior however difference in outward appearance doesn't mean your pain & happiness isn't as important as ours. We claim to be the most intelligent species on the planet but what use is intelligence when atrocities like this keep occurring to beautiful little beings like you? I believe this anthropocentric conditioning can be unlearned that's why I stay hopeful. Love ❤️ One optimistic animal lover #Repost @international_animal_rescue Our team received reports of 17 #lorises being kept at a #tourist resort as an #attraction for guests. Upon arrival at the location, only seven lorises were found alive, and three were found #dead . The bodies of the dead lorises had been left in the enclosure to decay. The lorises were being kept in an enclosure with just three trees. At night, they were lit up by spotlights – agony for this small #nocturnal #primate . The surviving lorises were rushed to our centre for urgent treatment and care. They were severely #dehydrated , #underweight and stressed. In addition, they were all found to have infections in their mouths and gums, as a result of having their #teeth cut out. Some even had to be wrapped in a warm compress due to their #temperatures being dangerously low. Tragically, one of the lorises named Gia was in such a bad state that she did not survive. She was suffering from dehydration, weakness, diarrhoea, arrhythmic heart sounds, hypothermia and was infested with worms. Our team did everything they could but her condition #deteriorated rapidly and she did not recover. These captive lorises were victims of shocking #cruelty and #neglect . We are relieved that we were able to bring the seven survivors to the safety of our centre, but are #heartbroken for the many lorises that have lost their lives as a result of this #selfish trade.
NOT A PET. Captive bred slow loris, teeth and glands intact. I'm his caretaker, he belongs to a sanctuary and is kept in close human contact for future breeding to preserve the species. Primates require a lot of time and affection. These animals are critically endangered and are suffering majorly from being poached from the wild and sold as pets. . Mogwai's excited face before i give him worms and a pinkie mouse.. makes your heart melt.. if you want the future generation to be able to see these animals in the wild then stop the illegal trade and poaching of slow lorises. *lighting edited so you can see*

Primates require a lot of time and affection. No i do not own the slow loris eating rice ball video. Don't ever think that.. that animal is not mogwai, that animal is wild. That animal had it's teeth ripped out and glands removed. On a diet of unhealthy rice balls because that's all it can eat without teeth.. so no.. i'm not a cruel heartless bastard. Don't spread lies about me. Make sure you're sure about something before blabbering about it. (Sorry for rant) . He's one of the few companions i have that bring me real joy, that make me feel better on my gloomy days. It's been a crappy start if a year boys. I thank you all for making me feel at peace at night and smile in the morning. Mogwai woke me up at 6A.M. chewing my hair. I had no choice but to scratch him wherever he pleases. Also, the second pic is him going "MORE WORMS SLAVE!" :,)
Image: Vicky Lakshman // Conservation #scientist Swapna Nelaballi spent months studying the Bengal slow #lorises in the #forests of #Tripura . She explains their hardly-studied #behaviour , #ecology and why they are endangered in the #wild . While most #primates are indisputably affected by #habitat loss, a more serious threat to this species in particular is the extremely lucrative illegal #pet trade. A thriving trade exists not only in local markets across Southeast #Asia but also over the #Internet where illegally acquired #slowlorises feature in some of the most-viewed 'viral' videos. Their natural defence to freeze or raise their arms when threatened is often misconstrued as an invitation to be petted. Their specialised #teeth and molars are inhumanely extracted without anesthesia. An unknown number of animals die from blood loss and infection due to tooth extractions, from toxic bites obtained from other lorises housed in cramped spaces and unhygienic conditions. The few that survive these torture chambers are then shipped far and wide destined to live in brightly lit homes, to be fed boiled rice or bananas and to be tickled until their deaths. #illegalwildlifetrade #pettrade #tripura #conservation #southeastasia
#Repost @endextinctionintl ・・・ 60% OF THE WORLD'S PRIMATES FACE EXTINCTION According to a new research report, more than half of the world's apes, monkeys, lorises and lemurs are facing extinction at the hands of humanity. The main threats facing these 300+ species are habitat destruction for agriculture, plantations and mining, as well as hunting for meat, body parts and the international pet trade. WHAT YOU CAN DO: * Don't pay to hold primates- its fuels the trade * Don't eat bushmeat or purchase products containing primates body parts * Purchase recycled or sustainably-sourced materials e.g wood * Volunteer to replant forests in Asia, Africa and South America * Avoid unsustainable palm oil and be an active shopper.

NOT PETS. Seriously, stop complaining or tagging ticklingistorture on Mogwai videos. If you read the caption on all my posts regarding him you'll see he's captive bred, NOT A PET, teeth and toxic glands intact! He belongs to a sanctuary and will be used for future breeding to preserve the species. Just cause internet experts say they raise their arms 100% means they're being defensive doesn't mean it's bloody true. I've had him for 2 something years and he loves being scratched and tickled and pet. Primates are not pets, they require A LOT of time and affection. I work with him from 6-7pm to 2-3am then he wakes me up 6-7am to play then put him to bed. It's a really rough job. I signed up to be his caretaker and you can easily tell i'm doing the best for him. Drives me crazy how that tag just drags in all the idiots. Tell me... why are slow lorises still wndangered? Why are they still being traded illegally? Because keyboard warriors never do anything productive or actually helpful. They just bash everything they see. It just sucks knowing you're doing the best you can and people still shit on you for the wrong reasons. Sorry for a slight rant guys.
NOT A PET. Captive bred slow loris belonging to the sanctuary, i'm just one of his caretakers before they call him back to breed. Primates require ALOT of time and affection. Teeth and toxic poison glands intact! Idk where the "tickling is torture" campaign started from but i doubt they're going the right way about it. Mogwai loves being scratched, tickled and rubbed down. Fat slob 😂❤️
NOT A PET. Captive bred slow loris, teeth and glands intact, primates require a lot of time and affection, he belongs to the sanctuary, i'm just a caretaker. . Guess who woke me up 3 hours early today :/
NOT a pet. Captive Bred slow loris, teeth and toxic glands intact, primates require a lot of time and affection. He's part of a conservation program, i do not own him, just a caretaker. . Teething still? He woke me up at 6A.M. Today to pet him... and if anyone's wondering about the writing in my shirt, it's from dead space😂
NOT A PET. Captive bred slow loris that i am a caretaker of, he belongs to the sanctuary and not me. For future breeding they have to be very used to humans being close. Teeth and toxic glands intact, primates require a lot of time and affection. . Mogwai is a dummie when it comes to eating worms.
NOT A PET. Captive bred Slow Loris i am a caretaker for, future breeding purposes. Primates require a lot of time and affection. Teeth and toxic glands intact. Critically endangered animal. . This lil bear woke me up today. I watched go to bed in his "sock pouch" at 2 am then i went to bed, turns out he must have came out sometime later, climbed up my bed and went to sleep under my covers. Woke up hearing click noises and i find him 😂 (he free roams the house when he pleases) . Lighting edited for viewing purposes.
Captive bred Slow Loris, teeth and toxins intact, not a pet. I'm just one of his caretakers. Primates require a lot of time and affection. . Quality time with Mogwai from 7-3am woohoo. (Lighting has been edited for viewing)
