Province of Bohol Things to Do: 204 reviews and 463 photos
Before coming to Bohol, I was imagining my first encounter with the tarsier to happen in a lush tropical forest or a sanctuary where I'd walk around and try to spot the tiniest primate in the whole wide world.
But no, our driver let us off infront of a souvenir shop and announced "tarsier". Huh? Stuffed tarsier? No, live ones.
The shop had a 'collection' of about 5 tarsiers in a big cage. A handler would take them out for souvenir photos. I was surprised to find out that these tiny critters can jump so fast when surprised. I had a couple on my arms and a big smile on my face when someone yelped and the cute ones jumped off as my friend clicked the camera. I had to chase one of them and snapped a photo as it clung in the cage for dear life.
Still, my first encounter with the tarsier was an ohhh-some experience
