Wow, What Big Beautiful Eyes You Have!
Often mistakenly dubbed as the "world's smallest monkey," the Philippine Tarsier ranks as one of the smallest primates in the world. Closely related to lemurs, these shy, delicate creatures literally fit in the palm of your hand. This was taken at a viewing/feeding station along the Loboc River. The fun part was feeding them - get a cricket from a jar using a stick, place it in front of the tarsier, and watch them eat it whole!
