Slender lorises (Loris) are a genus of loris native to India and Sri Lanka. The slender loris spends most of its life in trees (arboreal), traveling along the top of branches with slow and precise movements. It is found in tropical rainforests, scrub forests, semi-deciduous forests, and swamps. The species have lifespans of 15 years and are nocturnal. Slender lorises generally feed on insects, reptiles, shoots of plants, and fruits. Locally, they are known as Devanga Pilli ("దేవాంగ పిల్లి") in Telugu, kaadu paapa ("ಕಾಡು ಪಾಪ") in Kannada, kutti thevangu ("தேவாங்கு" தே(தெய்வ) வா(வாக்கு) விலங்கு(ங்கு) )in Tamil and Malayalam, and unahapuluwa (උනහපුළුවා) in Sinhala, and "Lajwanti" (लाजवंती) in Marathi.
