Species: Galago senegalensis
Bet you thought I had forgotten about the Galagos and Lorises! Today we have the Senegal Bushbaby.
The Senegal Bushbaby is perhaps the most widespread of the bushbabies. It’s range extends from Senegal, in western Africa, through eastern and southern Africa. It inhabits a wide variety of habitats including savannahs, open woodland and forests. It has long legs and ankles bones, making it one of the better leapers in the primate family. It feeds mainly on insects and gums. They tend to forage separately in individual home ranges but may group together in the daytime sleeping nests (they are nocturnal).
On an unrelated note, does anybody have a PDF copy of the article below:

paniscus. Contrib. Primatol. 1O:l-64.
If so could you email it to me?
