Abstract

Torpor use in primates appeared to be restricted to African species and was only recently discovered in a species from Asia, the pygmy loris (Nycticebus pygmaeus). This finding has considerable implications for our perception of torpor in this mammal group and demonstrates that torpor is probably more widespread in mammals than commonly thought. This article summarizes the current knowledge on the use of torpor in the pygmy loris and places it into the context of ongoing research on this topic.
