Where do I live?

Galago senegalensis is usually adapted to survive in drier areas as they are usually spotted in the Sub- Saharan and savannah regions of Africa. This constitutes mainly of a lot of the African countries along the equator, down to the northern part of South Africa. The countries were there has been numerous sightings include Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo. An example of a famous place these primates can be found, is the Udzungwa Mountains in Southern Kenya (Rovero et al. 2009).
They are usually around dense bushy environment and savannah woodlands. Their thick fur and adaptations on their feet and hands make for them to be efficient climbers. They tend to dwell very well around Acacia trees and riverine niches to survive. Their numbers in the population are usually stable and they nest together in groups of two or more. Due to their wide spread of their population all throughout the sub Saharan regions of Africa, they exhibit tolerance to temperature variations and are usually seen foraging at night. These tropical forests are also homes to various other animals that include chimpanzees, apes, yellow baboons, and some species of monkey known as Chlorocebus pygerythrus (vervet monkey) (Rovero et al. 2009).Bush baby on branch Permitted byKlaus Rudloff
The wide range of terrestrial land affect the distribution of the bush babies. The number of this organism varies from country to country. Looking at the places occurrences have been recorded can access the spread of these primates. The area with is marked by Senegal (ca. 16N) to the Gulf of Aden (ca. 15N), the galagos have been found to occupy the coastal forest out west and parts of Sahara (Rovero et al. 2009). It is suspected that G. senegalensis is the only lesser galago in the area of the savannah, while it is coexistent with Otolemur crassicaudatus in parts of East Africa (Nash et al. 1989) G. senegalensis are established to reside typically in terrestrial biomes that constitute forests and woodlands, multicellular organism like Saddle-Billed Stork, Cane toad, palm trees and honeybees are associated with these areas as well. We will see in interactions how plants, animals and even terrain shape out how bush babies are linked with the world.
