  • In 2001 and 2002, surveys of slender lorises were carried out in Sri Lanka, providing the first recent information on four taxa ( Loris lydekkerianus nordicus , L. l. grandis , L. tardigradus tardigradus , and L. t. nycticeboides ) endemic to the island. Thirty-one sites across five ecological zones were surveyed. Approximately 766 km were covered in 17 areas where no lorises were found; 192 km were walked or motored in 14 sites yielding 185 sightings of Loris : L. l. nordicus ( n =111), L. t… CONTINUE READING
