Lori, a quadrumanous animal of the lemur family, and genus stenops (Illiger). The teeth are: incisors 4/4, canines 1/1 - 1/1, molars 6/6 - 6/6; the ears are short and rounded; the eyes large and near together; the fore finger no longer than the thumb; the tail very short or absent. They form the family nycticebidce of some authors. They are nocturnal in their habits, and so slow in their movements that they are often called slow lemurs; they live on trees, eating fruit and insects, and sometimes small birds which they surprise at night. The aposo (S. potto, 111.) is of a reddish color, and inhabits the Gold coast of Guinea; the spinous processes of the last five cervical and first two dorsal vertebrae, according to Van der Hoeven, pierce the hairy integument, and have only a weak horny covering. The slow lori (S. tardigradus, auct.) is of a yellowish gray color, with a dark dorsal band, and a narrow whitish stripe between the eyes; i it is as slow as the sloth; it inhabits Bengal, Siam, Borneo, and Sumatra.
