What is a Bushbaby?
Galagos, or bushbaby are small nocturnal mammals that are in the primate family. About the size of a small rabbit they have human-like fingers and hands which they use to jump and grip onto branches high in the trees. They have big personalities and sweet dispositions. Bushbaby are very rare and uncommon, truly a one of a kind exotic.
Their attributes include no claws, small in size and they aren't common "biters" as adults. They have a low tendency to become aggressive with their families as adults, and have a mellow personality.
Average Lifespan: Up to 25 Years.
Diet: In captivity they require fresh fruits and vegetables daily along with a good source of protein. We feed eggs, chicken, chicks & mice. Treats may be given daily which include graham cracker, fig Newton, raisins or dates.
Size at Adulthood: 1-4 pounds and roughly the size of a small rabbit.
Minimum Cage size: Large parrot cages work best, I like double macaw cages with several nest boxes and hammocks to sleep and climb on.
