slow loris trade

Slow lorises

有著一對大眼睛的懶猴原本在野外得天獨厚,不但能夠製造毒液攻擊獵物,身上更有一層帶有獵食者抗拒的氣味的油脂。
可是,當人開始對這種可愛的生物感興趣,甚至有“想要養”的念頭時,牠們的惡夢也同時開始了。
一些非法販賣動物的商人眼看有市場就會設法得到懶猴,可想而知,直至牠們被買走,牠也不可能得到什麼人道的對待。
人們對動物感興趣是一件好事,但凡事過猶不及,動物不該是一種貨品,想要買就買,想要養就養。

a slow loris could produce toxins and would attack with a toxic bite, but its cute looking face with big round eyes had attracted many to want to keep one as a pet. this leaded to lots of illegal wild animal trades. slow loris are kidnapped from their homes and being mistreated. they would need to suffer in great pain like having their poisonous teeth cut off or pull out by the pet trader. it’s a good thing that people find slow lorises adorable, but does not mean we can treat them like a kind of goods. they belong to the wild and should not be a pet for us to keep.
