The Slender Loris (Loris lydekkerianus lydekkerianus) is one of the two nocturnal prosimians found in India. It is a small, shy and cryptic primate.

Two of its sub-species are found in southern India, namely Loris lydekkerianus lydekkerianus in the dry forests of Eastern Ghat mountain ranges and Loris lydekkerianus malabaricus in the rainforests of the Western Ghat.

The slender loris is a nocturnal animal that moves about looking for its prey through the night. It is characterized by its grey coat, a small body, a round head, big eyes, slender and long limbs, a well-developed thumb, big ears and the clear absence of a tail.
