<br />
A slender loris can be seen stargazing as part of a new attraction at a British safari park showing off its nocturnal animals.<br />
<br />
The tiny 10ins long, 275 grams primate, which is native to India, has huge brown eyes to hunt insects in the dark.<br />
<br />
The creatures, which spend most of their lives in trees but can't jump, are endangered in the wild due to a loss of habitat and poaching.<br />

Longleat Safari Park in Wilts is looking after a male and female of the species in an indoor enclosure set against the backdrop of a 20ft suspended replica of the moon by UK artist Luke Jerram.
