A vendor in Jakarta, Indonesia, offers for sale a lemur locally known as a kukang. The kukang is one of Indonesia's rare and endangered species, and a British animal welfare group says an illegal trade in primates for laboratory tests is thriving in Indonesia despite local and international regulations. The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection said Indonesia should be suspended from the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species for allowing the "disturbing trade."
