The family Galagonidae includes all bushbabies, also called galagos. These small primates are native to forested regions of Africa. Adaptations that help these arboreal, nocturnal primates include large eyes for better night vision, acute hearing and long tails for balance. In addition, galagos possess strong hind limbs giving them the ability to jump up to two meters vertically. Galagos are omnivorous, feeding on a mixture of insects, small vertebrates, fruit, and tree gums.
