Studying Bush Babies


For an undergraduate student to engage in what promises to be groundbreaking, revolutionary research is an extraordinarily unique experience. In August of 2003, I was given the opportunity to participate in a research program advancing the understanding of primates through behavioral research of prosimians known as bush babies (Otolemur garnettii), at The University of Southern Mississippi's Laboratory for Prosimian Studies. Through research and observation, I am learning something new every day about the behavioral, cognitive, and anatomical differences and congruencies between humans and our fellow primates.
