Found only in Bohol Philippines, this famous Tarsier is one of the smallest primates in the world and is considered to be the mammal with the biggest eyes. They have big eyes which makes them a good night-hunter.

Tarsier is very sensitive too in terms of their habitat. If you try to keep them as pet in your own backyard, they easily die if artificial habitat is not suitable for them.

If you take a photograph, please do not use flash as it disturbs them from sleeping or worst can cause them blindness for they have very sensitive eyeball.

This is really a must see in Bohol!

Directions: There are several tarsier sanctuary in the town of Loboc and Bilar.
