The Senegal bushbaby is also known as the lesser bushbaby or Senegal galago. Like lemurs, bushbabies are classed as prosimians.
Size: Head-body length: around 12 - 20cm
These bushbabies are found in the savannah woodlands and forests of Central Africa. They are arboreal, spending most of their time in trees.
Bushbabies are omnivores, feeding on insects, small birds, eggs, fruits, seeds, and flowers. During winter, tree gum is a very important part of their diet.
They build nests in thorny trees or in tree holes, and give birth to 1 or 2 young after a pregnancy of around 4 months. They normally breed twice a year in the wild.
The Senegal bushbaby is not believed to be endangered and their numbers are stable in the wild.
