    The lesser galago is one of the most widespread of primates in Africa. Their diet consists of fruits, insects and tree gums and they have special bacteria in the stomach to break down the gum. The gum is a rich source of nutrients in the colder months when insects are scarce. Their large ears and eyes are designed for nocturnal hunting. The eyes have a special membrane which reflects light and allows for excellent night vision.
