With their large eyes and unusual features, slow lorises are prime targets for illegal sale on the exotic pet trade. But while they may appeal to pet owners, lorises just aren't cut out for domestic life.

The last slow lorises were legally imported into Japan over ten years ago - they rarely breed in captivity. The species showing up on YouTube videos as pets in Japan were NEVER legally imported into Japan. More training is needed to identify which species are legal and not, as clearly many are getting through customs. These are wild animals that are highly threatened by the illegal pet trade that need hugely specialised care. The Little Fireface Project is willing to come to Japan again for more enforcement training, but slow lorises should be illegal as pets in Japan!
