Garnett’s Galago (Greater Bushbaby )

Otolemur garnetti

Bushbabies spend the day resting in a tree hole or among the vines, hiding from snakes. It emerges at night to run, climb, and leap–more than six feet at a time–about the treetops. Large, light-sensitive eyes help the galago know where it’s going.
