The northern greater galago(Otolemur garnettii), also known as Garnett's greater galago or small-eared greater galago, is a nocturnal, arboreal primate endemic to Africa. These are solitary animals that live and forage in their home range; both males and females dispersing from their birth territory. They are promiscuous in their sexual behaviour. The species exhibits a significant degree of sexual size dimorphism with males larger than the females. Their diet consists primarily of fruit and insects, approximately a 50/50 mix.

A high coverage assembly of the genome of Otolemur garnettii was sequenced by the Broad Institute using DNA from a single female individual.
