E.T

Lesser Bushbaby
3 years Years old



E.T eating dinner E.T is a soft cuddly and bubly eyed little creature. Lesser Bushbabies or night apes as they are called are insectivores and eat a lot of gum from the acacia thorn trees

E.T was brought into Chipangali at the a couple of days old. In those days he could easly fit in the small of your hand and looked like the character from E.T hence his name sake.

Whislt only a few days old he was fed from a tiny eye dropper every few hours this led to many a sleep less night from Claire Lupton. Today he eats a local cereal named pronutro together with insects and fruit. His speciality and treat is the eating of flying ants which come out of the ground during the rainy season. Being such a small animal it is expertly adapted to jumping large distances and can easily jump across the side of cage onto your shoulder
