Bush Baby

The galago, better known as the bush baby, is a small African primate with big eyes — adapted for its nocturnal behavior. I spotted this little guy one night while we were returning late from a game drive in Laikipia, Kenya. It was well past sunset and all the night creatures were just getting up and about.

    Cute button nose. But lack of any white in his eyes is a bit creepy. Cute angle to take a shot, like he’s peeking from behind the leaves.
