A few years ago, the slow loris was all the rage in exotic pet care. One look at their face, and you can easily understand why. They’re incredibly adorable and have charming personalities. If you already have a slow loris or know someone who does, you know that under the proper care and attention they can be happy household companions.
But, don't be mistaken, it’s incredibly hard to set up a proper household for these pets without stressing them out or leaving out some major need they have. Plus, they can have venomous bites that can kill even humans (though they can be clipped to not be dangerous).
So, this animal is on this list more as a cautionary tale in case you hear that these are great family pets. Because their big eyes and adorable features make humans want them around, keeping them in captivity — unless done with incredible research, training and care — isn’t the best idea.
