    Thanks for these sounds very helpful. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ve heard them in the wild or recognised them if I have. I was keen to hear them as my family saw what by their description could only have been a Galago moholi. “Fluffy, big eyed, little gremlin” leaping repetitively up against my bedroom wall towards the light fixture after insects. I didn’t know I had these or that they even existed as far South as Port Edward Natal. Maybe its been introduced? I haven’t heard any of these sound there either in fact…..just this eye witness account. Over the years I’ve planted a little coastal forest including many other South African trees and “Acacias”. Since then I have a resident troop of Samango monkeys, Vervit monkeys and have even heard baboons barking at dusk, rather too close by for comfort, so maybe its not entirely impossible to find a lesser bush baby?

      Hi! So sorry for my late reply but we were in the field for some weeks. Thank you very much for your interesting primate information from Port Edward Natal. To my best knowledge there are no reports of Southern lesser galago from that area. The galago that occurs in the area is the large-eared greater galago (Otolemur crassicaudatus)….possibly you saw those? They are quite a bit larger than Galago moholi. You find their calls and images on this website. Well done on planting trees and for protecting primate habitat! Do you have good photos of Samango and vervets? Thank you! Yvonne
