According to some accounts, the name "bush baby" comes from either the animal's cries or its appearance. The South African name nagapie comes from the fact that they are almost exclusively seen at night.

Generally, the social structure of the bushbaby has components of both social life and solitary life. This can be seen in their play. They will swing off branches or climb high and throw things.

Social play includes play fights, play grooming, and following-play. When following-play, two bushbabies will jump sporadically and chase each other through the trees.

The older bushbabies in a group prefer to rest alone, while younger ones are in constant contact with one another.
