Although galagos are considered wild animals, in some countries they are allowed as pets. A Japanese woman, Kayoko Katsu, took advantage of this opportunity and became the owner of a galago named Pizzatoru.
There are already 462 thousand followers of Pizzatore’s adventures on Instagram, and every day there are more and more of them.
Well, who can resist these wild jumps and unearthly charm?
Kayoko admits that galagos are not the easiest pets.
“You can’t train a monkey like you can train a cat or a dog. They have a habit of marking. They pee and shit everywhere. You have to clean up after him every day. But that’s not all. When the animal is not in the mood, he shows his wild temperament: he can bite, and it hurts quite a bit,” she says.
Nevertheless, according to Kayoko, Pizzatoru is a good boy. He doesn’t chew on furniture or electrical wires.
One problem: Pizzatoru does not like strangers and gets angry when guests come to the house.
Pizzator’s favorite foods are special milk bars for animals, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, dried tomatoes, and bananas. His main food is monkey food, which is similar to cat or dog food.
Galagos do not like solitude, they like to socialize with their families.
