Philippine Tarsiers

The Philippine tarsier is one of the smallest primates and is endemic to the Philippines.  The size of a human fist, it is nocturnal and eats insects and small vertebrates.  These vulnerable animals were photographed at the Philippine tarsier and wildlife sanctuary, Corella, Bohol, where they are protected against illegal hunting and predators.  For a short video about the tarsier foundation, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOW5jpXnktY
