Slow Loris Sold As A Restaurant Attraction Finds Loving Home
This slow moving creature is really getting racy – by taking up pole dancing. Sarah, a three-year-old male slow loris, lives at home in Perm, Russia with owner Irina and his favourite activity is playing on the pole. He happily spins on the pole and taking part in day-to-day domestic life.
His owner brought him home after a friend originally decided to buy him as a restaurant attraction in 2013.
Irina said: “His name is Sarah because when we got him the breeder said he was a girl and had called him Sarah. We released he was a boy too late to change his name – by that time, ‘Sarah’ had stuck. We got him by accident. There are plenty of wild animal traders in Russia, and my friend was opening a Thai restaurant and we decided to buy one for it. We thought they were so cute but when we first saw him he was so tiny. He was only three years old and weighed about 100g. We understood having him in the restaurant was a bad idea. Such a small animal would not survive without special care in such a crowded place. So Kate presented him to me and my husband.”
Irina admits buying the slow loris was not a great idea in the first place and that living at home with a wild animal can be tough. However, she maintains she and her husband are happy to look after Sarah as there is no chance he would survive in the wild.
