Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. Purpose Trees for Gray Slender Lorises. var. The Ayyalur habitat is degrading fast due to constantly increasing human pressure, which depend on … Slender lorises spend most of their life in trees, traveling along the top of branches with slow and precise movement… Evidence for behavioural variation in the Mysore slender loris is significant for two reasons - one, there are few instances of clearly documented intraspecific variation in wild nocturnal primate species and two, this flexibility, it would appear, allows the Mysore slender loris to inhabit and survive in degraded and disturbed habitats across southern India, an adaptability that is thus critically linked to its conservation status. In Tamil Nadu State of India in the Kollimalai region, there is illegal catching of Slender Loris, also called Devangu in Tamil and there is also a vigorous clampdown on it. Native people have always believed that all parts of the slender loris have some medicinal or magical powers. Oryx 33(1):31-37. The south-central districts of Tamil Nadu showed the highest densities of lorises, while the western districts showed the lowest. The Lorises help farmers by preying on farm pests such as grasshoppers and scorpions thereby protecting their crop.

Also, local astrologers in Karnataka and Kerala are known to use lorises to pick out tarot cards (Ahmed 2001). longipetala), P. diffusa and P. spicata. Venu et al. © 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH. A survey of the slender loris Loris tardigradus, a Vulnerable primate, was carried out in the Dindigul Forests of Tamil Nadu, India, in 1996 in order to assess prevalence. We recorded and analyzed 1240 feeding incidents, which indicate that the lorises were almost exclusively faunivorous, with 96% of all feeding events representing animal prey. Both slender loris species are unique among the members of the family Lorisidae in many respects. Folio Primatalogica, 87 (5). Slender loris inhabits tropical rain forest, open woodland, swampy coastal forest, semi-deciduous forest, scrub forest, Casuarinas groves and bamboo clumps.

Status survey of slender loris Loris tardigradus lydekkerianus in Dindigul, Tamil Nadu, India Slender Loris - Slender Loris, commonly found in the tropical scrub and deciduous forests of Southern India and Sri Lanka. Solmsiella biseriata (Austin) Steere, Aulacopilum glaucam Wilson and, The grey slender loris Loris lydekkerianus, one of only two nocturnal primates of India, is found in the southern part of the country. Gupta’s research in the forests of Tamil Nadu is the only radio-collared study of slender lorises. When all observations regarding dependent offspring are excluded, the animals spent on average 38% of their activity in various forms of neutral, affiliative, and agonistic behaviors. The south-central districts of Tamil Nadu showed the highest densities of lorises, while the western districts showed the lowest. The Slender Loris, commonly called Thevangu in Tamil, is a small, nocturnal and arboreal primate. Social Impact Habitat destruction is a threat to the survival of Slender loris. Slender Loris a small, nocturnal primate a genus of Loris, commonly found in the tropical scrub and deciduous forests as well as the dense hedgerow plantations bordering farmlands of Southern India and Sri Lanka.. Habitat and Feeding Behavior Majumdar (1993) recognized three species and three varieties from India. It can … The home range and ranging pattern of the slender loris (Loris tardigradus lydekkerianus) was studied for 21 months in a scrub jungle in Dindigul, Tamil Nadu, south India. in southern India.

They are listed under Schedule I of the Wildlife (Protection) Act of India, 1972, according them the highest level of legal protection. Loris lydekkerianus is now considered a separate slender loris species found in India and Sri Lanka, while Loris tardigradus is a slender loris species found exclusively in Sri Lanka. A study by the Biology Department of Gandhigram Rural University highlights the need to conserve the Grey Slender Loris. Slender lorises spend most of their life in trees, traveling along the top of branches with slow and precise movement… Males had significantly larger home ranges than the females, and.
