The Rondo Dwarf Galago according to MammalMAP
The Rondo bushbaby is endemic to coastal Tanzania, and is known only from eight small and highly threatened evergreen forest patches.
The Rondo dwarf galago is a small, nocturnal primate, weighing around 60 grams. They have long, bottle-brush tails, large ears and big eyes. They are also known for their distinctive ‘double unit rolling call’.
Dwarf galagos feed mainly on insects, but also like fruit and flowers. During the day they sleep in their daytime sleeping nests, which are often in canopies.
The biggest threat to this species’ existence is habitat degradation caused by charcoal manufacturing, agricultural encroachment and logging of the remaining forest fragments.
