Here's my attempt ...difficult to find 5 differences :hmz:

Thick-tailed bushbaby
1. Less active
2. harsh & repetative wail
3. mostly gumnivorous and frugivorous
4. gestation 133 days
5. litter 2 or 3 once a year depending on locality.

Lesser bushbaby
1. More active
2. loud & shrill call
3. eat insects and gum
4. gestation 125 days
5. twins born twice a year.

Well done Kamp Runner :clap: :clap:

Also
Thick tailed are unable to land on their hind feet after leaping
Lesser appear to be afraid of the dark :shock: as they only forage at dawn, dusk and when there is a moon :)

You're IT !

Gosh......correct you say :shock: I'm surprised as I found it difficult to find 5 differences (once you took size away :evil: ) as they are so similar

Thanks guys :D ..I will endeavour to find an interesting mammal for the forumites to ponder over :hmz:

1. I am named after a newspaper.

2. I am often mistaken for another because we have similar nocturnal habits and threat display.
