The following appears to be the only reported information relevant to hybridization in Family Galagidae. If you know of reported galago hybrids other than those listed here, please contact the website.

Galago granti [Mozambique Galago]
× Galago moholi [South African Galago] A parapatric contact zone exists in Zambia and southern Malawi (Hill 1953, Fig. 75), which suggests the occurrence of natural hybrids. However, it seems no hybrids have as yet been reported. These taxa are sometimes lumped.

Galago moholi [South African Galago]
See also: Galago granti.
× Graphiurus kelleni [Kellen’s Dormouse] CHR. CON: Angola, Zambia. See the separate article “South African Galago × Kellen’s Dormouse.”

Otolemur crassicaudatus [Brown Greater Galago]
× Otolemur garnettii [Garnett’s Greater Galago] CHR. CON: eastern Tanzania. Internet Citations: OTOLE.
× Otolemur monteiri (♀) [Silvery Greater Galago] CHR. CON: Kenya, Tanzania. The diploid number of O. crassicaudatusis 2n = 62, that of O. monteiri is 2n = 48. The two are, however, sometimes treated as conspecific. Poorman 1982.
