This animal is a Slender Loris (Loris tardigradus).
It is a prosimian but is not a lemur, since lemurs are found
in Madagascar and loris are found in Southeast Asia.

Scientific Name: Loris tardigradus (Linnaeus, 1758)
Common Names:
English – Red Slender Loris, Slender Loris
French – Loris Grèle
Spanish – Loris Fino
