(Newser) – Is that a slender loris in your pants, or are you just happy to see me? In this case, it was the former: Three United Arab Emirates men headed to Dubai from Bangkok were caught with small primates in their underwear. Two were carrying mammals called slender lorises, Sri Lanka natives whose numbers are reportedly threatened amid growing popularity as pets, the BBC reports. Guards discovered a bulge in the smugglers' underwear during a frisk, leading to the discovery. The animals are being treated.
