After a brutal kidnapping by illegal pet traders, two adorable baby slow lorises have finally found peace and comfort in each other’s arms. At six to eight weeks old, Pasar and Warung were torn away from their mother in the Indonesian rainforest and stuffed into boxes ready to be sold in one of the notorious animal markets in Jakarta. The traders had filed down the terrified animals’ teeth because the endangered slow loris species has a gland inside its arm that secretes venom which the loris wipes on its teeth to create a poisonous bite.
