All lorisids show cryptic behavior, moving slowly and deliberately through the trees while foraging. This seems to be their primary strategy for avoidance of predation. In fact, members of this family all have low basal metabolic rates, so
they are probably constrained to slow movement for energetic reasons. All species show scent marking. They have specialized marking glands in the genital region (scrotal and vulval glands) and some of them (e.g., slender loris) perform "urine washing" in which the palms of the hands and the soles of their feet are impregnated with urine before being applied to the substrate.
