Looking more like an Australian possum, the bush-baby is in fact a small monkey and is about the size of a rabbit. It is found in all major reserves in Kenya, although being a nocturnal creature it is rarely sighted by day.
The head is small with large rounded ears and, as might be expected on a nocturnal animal, relatively large eyes. The thick fur is dark brown and the bush-baby sports a thick bushy tail. Your average bushbaby measures around 80 cm in length, of which the tail is around 45 cm, and weighs less than two kg.
The lesser bushbaby (Galago senegalensis) is about half the size of the greater bushbaby. It is a very light grey in colour and has yellowish colouring on the legs.
