The lesser bushbaby, known to scientists as Galago moholi, is a small, tree-dwelling primate
active by night. They are capable of leaps of remarkable distance between trees. At times they
may venture on the ground, when they walk either on their hind legs or on all fours.


The diet of the Lesser Bushbaby consists mainly of tree gum and insects. Feeding on fruit has not
been recorded but is likely.


Females have a short estrus period during winter. They generally give birth to twins before the
rainy season, which is immediately followed by a second estrus. Well before the onset of the
next dry season a second set of twins are born. Gestation period is 125 days. Size - roughly 6
inches with a tail of 4 to 11 inches.

Adult males avoid confrontation with each other by maintaining individual territories, their
social system is similar to that of the Thick-Tailed Bushbaby. Adults are solitary foragers, but
companions do meet at night to interact, and congregate before going to sleep during the day in
groups of up to six.

Prior to 1974 only six species were recognized, but by 1995 research has shown that in fact 17
species warrant recognition in Africa.
Where they are found
Because of their dependence on trees, they are restricted to savanna woodlands, particularly
Acacia, Rhodesian teak and Brachystegia woodlands.
