English: Slow lorises like this Sunda Slow Loris juvenile (Nycticebus coucang) have their teeth forcibly removed by animal traffickers in the open-air "bird markets" of Indonesia. The slow loris is the world's only venomous primate. Its venom is stored in an elbow patch: the loris will suck in the venom from the patch, then mix it around in its mouth before delivering a toxic bite. So, when illegal traders catch them and sell them on, they usually remove the teeth with wire cutters or toenail clippers, which after leads to infection or even death.

Deutsch: Plumploris wie dieses juveniles Sunda-Plumplori (Nycticebus coucang) bekommen ihre Zähne abgeknipst für den Haustierverkauf bei illegalen Tierhändlern in öffentlichen "bird markets" in Indonesien. Plumploris sind die einzigen giftigen Primaten. Das Gift ist am Ellbogen eingelagert; die Loris saugen das Gift ab und mischen es im Mund, danach wird ihr Biss giftig. Deswegen werden die Zähne bei den illegalen Tierhändlern normalerweise entfernt, mit Seitenschneidern oder Nagelknipsern, was oft zu schweren Entzündungen oder sogar zum Tod führt.
