 The Oasis Sanctuary, LTD - Notes from a Lory Lover
Lories are generally distinguished from Lorikeets by the shape of the tail, with Lorikeets generally having a long, pointed tail.
Lories have evolved a speedy metabolism that utilizes the high carbohydrate food sources available to them in the wild; they will feed intermittently throughout the day and must be provided with food at all times since they are vulnerable to problems (shock, coma and even death) due to low blood sugar.
Lories are very active both on the ground as well as climbing and need a large, spacious cage with plenty of climbing structures (rope, plastic chain, "boings", etc.), floor space for hopping and rolling around and varied toys to entertain them.
