One of our distant cousins, the Slow Loris, is actually one of the extremely rare venomous mammals on the planet. Sadly, each of the species of Slow Loris are heading towards extinction. We have so much more to learn about these ancient animals. Native to Asia, many Slow Loris are captured for the illegal pet trade. They are actually quite slow, which we highlight this week, and are quite easy to catch. Thus, due to their "cuteness" they are sold all over the world. Their story saddened us so much that it gives us, and we hope you, the drive to do more to save them and all the species in peril. Join us this week as we explore one of the world's most unique animals.
Another thank you to all our Patreon supporters. We now are hosting monthly Zoom meetings with them, answering questions and getting ideas on which species they want covered. You too can join for one cup of "good" coffee a month. With your pledge you can support your favorite podcast on Patreon and give back to conservation. With the funds we receive each month, we are have been sending money to conservation organizations monthly. We now send a check to every organization we cover, as we feel they all are deserving of our support. Thank you so much for your support and for supporting animal conservation.
