The Bush Baby

The bush baby is specially adapted to living life in the trees because of flat “discs” on the fingers and toes as well as a shortened index finger to help with grip.  One of the most noticeable aspects of the bush baby is the fact that it has such large eyes. Interestingly enough they cannot move their eyes in the sockets – they actually have to move their head to be able to see what’s around. Although this is quite inconvenient, they do have remarkable hearing. They have a series of folds which allows them to accurately pin point where a sound is coming from. They can even hear the sound of an owl gliding through the air!
