Kalo the Slow Loris is Settling in to New Dorset Home
7:27pm 20th August 2014
Kalo the Slow Loris, rescued by Monkey World in Wareham is making himself at home in his new Dorset home.
It's after British Airways agreed to fly the monkey 5,000 miles from where he confiscated in the Maldives.
Dr Alison Cronin, who's the director of Money World, has been working closely with authorities there to foster Kalo, after he was rescued by police carrying out a drugs raid.
She said: "He has muscle wastage from living in a small bird cage since he was stolen from the wild and his coat is dirty and sparse. His condition should improve dramatically in the coming weeks as he is climbing around his new home and eating loads of crickets and locusts"
The centre also says the previous owner is refusing to give any information about Kalo's history, and the centre is still trying to confirm the monkey's gender (they are referring to Kalo as 'him' at the moment!) It's hoped the infa-red CCTV will help document his development and determine whether Kalo is developing into a lady or a man!
