Insects, fruit, gums, small vertebrates.
The slender loris is nocturnal, sleeping by day while gripping a branch with its hands and feet. Its grasp is so strong that the animal can hang by one leg and feed in this position.
After a gestation of 180-193 days a single youngster is born. The female carries the baby for several days after which she deposits it on a branch (baby parking), collecting it later in the night or the following morning.
