It's cute but it's in Russia which means its teeth have been ground into nothing so it can't bite people with its poison bite. The poison in its elbows has also probably been removed by surgically taking them out. In order to get this animal, it was probably smuggled in horrible conditions from Southeast Asia where many of its kin died and where most likely the forest where it lived was burnt to the ground to grow soy beans or raise cattle.
Go exotic pet craze, go.
I was going to submit this, as the better animals tag came to mind. Then I researched Slow Loris as pets and realized they have a poison bite. Then what baleen has said...
@ Baleen, at the rate their natural habitat is disappearing, they'll soon only exist in captivity.

If they weren't venomous and didn't have a tendency to pee on their hands, I would want one.
Ah hell, I still want one.
Eh, their toxin is only a mild irritant at best (unless you're allergic of course).

From the Wikipedia page:
"They are also turned into a wine said to alleviate pain, or dried and smoked."

Fuck the exotic pets industry. It's a venomous monkey that drinks beer. It's fucking awesome and I want an army of them.
Still sneering. Wait for it.

This lazy creature has only to nudge you with his elbow to defend himself. Gotta love it!

This animal lives only to entertain.

5'd for snatching umbrella back indignantly.

until the astronaut breaks back through the time distortion to tell us all about the planet with Loris Law.

"Dr Nekaris said the loris in the umbrella video had suffered a head wound, most likely caused by being transported in a cage. Although the creature may look happy, it submits to being tickled as a passive defence-mechanism to deal with stress.
The loris is a nocturnal animal and is effectively being blinded by the daylight in the videos. Disoriented, it grasps at the umbrella believing it is the bamboo of its natural terrain."
