 Chapter 1 -Where It Lives

    

      A galago (also known as bush-baby) lives in Southern Africa. Galagos live in the canopy of the rainforest.  They also can live in woodlands and bushlands in sub-Saharan Africa. Galagos do not  inhabit in areas above 1,600 feet most of the times.  Most often, the would live in tree hollows. Sometimes they live in man-made beehives.

 Chapter 2: Vertebrate or Invertebrate? Size? 

 

     A galago is 10 to 16 inches in length, when it is fully grown. It can be 2 to 4.5 pounds in weight. A galago's tail is 9 to 13 inches long. Invertebrate or vertebrate? A galago is vertebrate. So, it does have a backbone.

  Chapter 4: Adaptations

     

 

    The galago can live up to18 years in captivity of the forest, but much shorter in the wild. The stratagey that helps the gallago survive,  is  that they are very hard to see. That is because they are small. Galagos are also nocturnal so it makes it even harder to see them!

 

 

 Chapter 5: Decription

 

   A galago is covered with thick- like fur. Its color is what depends on its habitat.  They are ussually silver or brown. .  They can jump up to 6.6 feet high when they're trying to get away  from a preditor. That is because of its back leg joints. Galagos vocolize  by producing a child-like cry, that is why some people call them bush- babies. They spend most of their time in trees.

 Chapter 6: Interesting Fact

 

 

     Galagos have large ears with 4 ridges! They can fold when needed to, and makes it where a galago can detect anything cominging  from ALL directions! Galagos also have a double tounge! Lastly, their teeth look like a comb.

 About the Author

 

 

     I, Makaria is a 10 year old student at Montana Magnet. I LOVE animals! What made me want to do this animal is how they looked fun, and because we are learning about rainforests. The galago  on Madagascar was the most insperation for me. Galagos were soooo cute so I decided, "That's the one!" Not only do I like rainforest animals, but I got selsected to be an actress and model (decided to wait until after college). I love the forests and I hope this inspires you!
