Cute alert! Baby loris rescued in China

A baby loris has been rescued by a wild animal shelter in the People's Park of Zhengzhou, the capital of central China's Henan Province.

The loris, suffering from malnutrition, was found injured in a vegetable field on Tuesday. Growing in south areas of China, the nocturnal primates are now given national first-class protection.

Zoos and animal protection organisations are working around the globe to protect the loris, which is under threat from global deforestation.

In the UK, London Zoo is celebrating the birth of two Sri Lankan slender lorises - see the gorgeous images below.
