Facts about the Rondo Dwarf galago

Howdy! 

Are you ready to learn some cool facts?

Have you ever heard of the Rondo Dwarf galago? I haven’t ever heard of it until a few days ago. So, I thought I’d type up a blog post to share with you. The Rondo Dwarf galago also known as the Rondo Bushbaby is a very small mammal that can be found in coastal Tanzania. It is super cute with big ears and eyes.

 

What is your favorite type of galago?

 

Facts about the Rondo Dwarf galago:

1. They are omnivores, which means they eat both plants and meat! Rondo Dwarf galagos feed on insects, fruits and flowers.

4. The Rondo Dwarf galago was discovered in the 1950’s but not much information was known about them until 1996.

5. They may live in small groups of around two to eight galagos.
