Photograph titled 'Lottie likes the night'. Caption on back reads: 'Tiny animal with the outsize eyes and worried look is slender loris Lottie, of Bristol Zoo's nocturnal house. Lottie may be a little puzzled by the new way of life she has had to adopt at the Zoo. As she normally sleeps throughout the day her home is artificially lit by night and darkened in the daytime so that visitors can see her awake and active in the subdued light during the day'.
