Eighteen adult skeletons ofLoris tardigradus lydekkerianus (4 males and 4 females) andNycticebus coucang (6 males and 4 females) have been studied for the asymmetries in the long bones of the limbs and of the clavicles. The bones of the upper extremity are longer in the right inLoris andNycticebus. Asymmetry favours the right side more inLoris than inNycticebus regarding the thigh bone and the total length of the lower extremity. Lorises do not essentially differ from the other primates…
