Facts about the Rondo Dwarf galago

Rondo Dwarf Galago 


Have you ever heard of the Rondo Dwarf galago? I hadn’t until a few days ago, so I thought I’d write a blog post about it. The Rondo Dwarf galago, also known as the Rondo Bushbaby, is a small mammal 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 plants and meat! Rondo Dwarf galagos feed on insects, fruits, and flowers.

2. The Dwarf Rondo galago is the smallest of the galagos. Depending on the type, they can weigh up to three and a half (3 ½) ounces, sometimes more or less. They are about 12 to 13 centimeters long!

3. Galagos can be found in coastal forests of sub-Sahara Africa.

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

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

6. They are nocturnal, which means they are mostly active during the nighttime hours and spend most of the daytime hours high up in the trees.

7. There are about 20 species of Galagos. Here is a list of some of them:

  •    Brown greater galago
  •    Senegal bushbaby
